A closer look at the Bio-based Material of the Year 2014 Innovation Award nominees, part 2

FIS Green 300 T is the first chemical injection mortar, derived from bio-based components. The goal was to "innovate a real "green" product which is based on a majority of bio-based raw materials". Chemical injection mortars are complex mixtures consisting of a multitude of different raw materials, for each of which green substitutes were examined. As a result, bio-based raw materials with various functions were used: reactive resins, fillers, additives, plasticizers and two different thermoplastic polymers for the cartridge and pistons.

As a result, bio-based raw materials with various functions were used: reactive resins, fillers, additives, plasticizers and two different thermoplastic polymers for the cartridge and pistons.

This radical product redesign approach yielded a product offering a bio carbon content of 50-85%. FIS Green 300 T demonstrates that it is possible to re-formulate even complex products to make these bio-based and more sustainable.
