About PPS Innovation GmbH
PPS Innovation GmbH, based in the hearth of Bavaria – Germany, is the pioneer in the en-tire EU in research & development, as well as the production of sustainable disposable nitrile gloves. The first production of nitrile gloves in Europe was started by PPS in the summer of 2022 in Bulgaria.
PPS Innovation GmbH, part of the PPS family, is focused on achieving sustainable production of bio-based and 100% biodegradable nitrile gloves based solely in Europe. Focal points are the shorter delivery processes, utilization of local raw materials, and eco-friendly product life-cycle.
Technology and innovation
Nitrile gloves are currently the world market leader in the disposable glove segment as personal protective equipment in the medical, laboratory, cosmetic, food processing and other sectors, and the trend is still rising. Especially in developing regions, the issue of biodegradability is highly relevant due to poor waste management.
Our response to our own quality requirements, as well as the increasing demands and societal expectations in the context of sustainability for such products, is targeted systematic innovation work to achieve a 0-carbon footprint for our product. We do this in the context of our competence network and highly competent teams, as well as partners from Germany and Europe.
Achieving full biodegradability of the used gloves in natural climate conditions and environment. The goal is to minimize the usage of extra resources such as energy, raw materials, chemical and organic substances.
Development, testing, and application of unique biobased elastomer so we can achieve full independence from petrol-based products and run a decentralized concept for the whole product life-cycle. This includes local refining and utilization of the raw materials needed for the production and packaging of the gloves; their respective application and returning of the product in the cycle.
