BioCor LLC is a Concord, California-based limited liability company founded to create a bioplastic recycling infrastructure that will allow the company to act as an end user for both post industrial and post consumer PLA plastic waste. BioCor will also be able to market the products it makes from the recycled materials.

Though PLA bioplastics are generally made of material derived from plant starches and can be completely recycled or composted, there is a severe lack of bioplastic recycling infrastructure. BioCor can assist recyclers to separate PLA, number 7 plastics from other plastics and will collaborate on pilot PLA recycle and reuse projects.
