Dr Bio is made from corn and is 100% compostable and biodegradable which has proven to be the best alternative of the normal plastic which does not depletes even in 1000 years. As for recycling paper, there is a limit to recycling paper and every kg of paper uses 70 liters of water to recycle the paper, which is counterproductive. Similarly, the process of recycling aluminum and recyclable plastic has high upfront capital costs and these
processes themselves are unhygienic and unsafe. Even the recycles products are not of very high quality.
Hi Tech Group a 38 year old manufacturer of master batches, resins and films has developed a new range of renewable and compostable bio based biopolymers: Our bio polymers are produced from Corn Starch in the agriculture rich region of Punjab, India and available in 45 countries globally. Hi Tech Group’s commitment towards sustainability is oriented to reduce the greenhouse gasses impact, minimize the dependence on fossil oil derivatives, and promote the use of renewable energies and to reduce the plastic waste in the environment.
According to some reports, Urban India generates 62 million tons of waste (MSW) annually, and this will reach 165 million tons in 2030. 43 million tons of municipal solid waste is collected annually, out of which 31 million is dumped in landfill sites and just 11.9 million is treated.
The sizes of landfills in India is constantly increasing and that is fast becoming a major concern. Contrary to the composition of waste in western countries, the majority of India’s waste is organic which means that there is a tremendous opportunity to compost a lot of it. Then there is sustainability, renewable feedstocks such as corn, sugarcane, and algae can be utilized as raw material instead of petroleum, thereby reducing global dependence on crude oil and lessening the impact on climate.
With our unique Farm to Polymer model we are working closely with farmers to procure and secure our highly re!ned corn starch supplies and other essential bio mass inputs. The supplies are assured even if we 10X our production capacity than that of today.

Dr. Bio polymers are just completely bio degradable, they can be licensed to other manufactures for usage in their manufacturing of various products as a substitute to conventional non biodegradable polymers on their existing infrastructure. It will also bring forward savings of upto 30% on electricity consumption during its processing. The products offered by the company are
used in different sectors and applications such as appliances, plastic bottles, packaging, fresh food packaging, folded cartons, cellphone cases, service ware, nonwovens, other durable goods, printing toners etc.
The major advantage is that bio-based polymers replace fossil carbon in the production process with renewable carbon from biomass. This is indispensable for a sustainable, climate-friendly plastics industry. It shall also result in elimination of micro plastics from our environment. The second most important advantage is that is offering employment to our farmers to produce the rich maize crop which is a major raw material as against the import of crude oil that is used for production of currently used polymers. It has significant economic advantages and will help reduce the trade deficit.
Dr. Bio is compostable polymer, which means the bio plastic disintegrates and completely composts within six months as validated by Govt of India laboratory. The Dr Bio compostable bioplastic material will have been converted to CO2. The remaining share is converted into water and biomass, which no longer contains any plastic. No heavy metal contents and no harmful substances should be left behind
Following our core values, we have optimized our production processes in order to reduce the generated waste with a “zero waste” policy and to minimize our CO2 footprint impact from our activities.
