Award Winning Paper Coating Technology

The world is facing considerable challenges posed by plastic pollution and climate change. In our oceans alone, it is estimated that there will more plastic than fish by 2050. The extent of the problem extends beyond just plastics in our oceans, with microplastics (tiny fragments of plastic found in water and air) now being found in the Arctic and other remote areas.

The global market urgently requires sustainable solutions to tackle these major challenges. SGMA delivers solutions that are extracted from sand, sustainable and provide alternatives to plastic and a route to create effective non fossil fuel-based chemicals by using non-toxic raw materials that are available globally.

SGMA’s barrier coating for fibre-based packaging provides an excellent example of how we can make a difference. Our barrier coating for fibre-based packaging provides a complete solution to replace single-use plastics and eliminates confusion among users and customers.

Completely free from micro plastics, our technology helps also fits seamlessly into the recycling infrastructure of any country by providing a solution that is biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. The product currently is in process of getting certified for food contact in Europe and America.
