Cereplast, Inc., a manufacturer of proprietary bio-based, sustainable plastics, announced that it will be supplying Absorbent Specialty Products with its bioplastic resin for the company’s new “Bio-Bones” Bone Replacement Prosthetics.

“We’re very pleased that Absorbent Specialty Products selected our Compostables® resin for its Bio-bones product line,” said Frederic Scheer, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast. “It is encouraging to see more and more manufacturers developing and manufacturing products using sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based plastic products.”

“We selected the Cereplast resin because of its natural ability to burn clean and turn to ash during cremation, as opposed to melting and emitting toxic fumes, as well as its strength and durability,” said Carol Dancer, President of Absorbent Specialty Products. “There are other products on the market for bone reconstruction, but Cereplast provided our company with a complete solution.”
