One of the most advanced bioplastics manufacturers in Europe - EcoCortec® is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The project started in 2006 with greenfield investment by Croatian-American entrepreneur Boris Miksic. Today the plant has evolved in one of the most modern European manufacturers of environmentally safe films for corrosion protection.
Only the last year the company sales grew by 20.6% compared to 2015 and during the past 10 years the manufacturer has tripled its production capacity. The plant exports more than 90% of its assortment to countries in Europe, Asia and USA.
In the past years EcoCortec® has been successfully participating in large European-funded projects. The company played a major role in an international Marine Clean Project worth €1.1 million sponsored by CIP Eco-Innovation Program. The main goal of the project is to prevent the hazardous environmental impact of conventional plastic materials discarded at sea, as well as promoting sustainability and innovative technologies. Currently the company is negotiating a partnership in a new €2 million project called "PLAPAPER" within the Interreg Central Europe Programme.
