Last Generation Technology
BIOAMMO has the most modern shotshell factory in Europe, with the latest machinery and technology, as well as a unique and innovative manufacturing process.
BIOAMMO’s wads and hulls are designed, manufactured and assembled in-house for use in all of our nine product types.
The entire production process is monitored with strict quality controls during the four phases of cartridge manufacturing: Component production, loading, assembly and the test bench. This ensures that the shotshells have consistent high quality and reliability.
All BIOAMMO shotshells are loaded with premium double base powders, made in the USA.
For those who are committed to environmental sustainability, BIOAMMO offers a complete solution to the pollution and disposal problems that traditional plastic shotshells cause to our ecosystems.
BIOAMMO wads and hulls also do not generate any micro-plastics.
For the production of their hulls and wads, BIOAMMO is the only manufacturer to be supplied with biopolymers that have their respective certifications guaranteeing that they are biodegradable and compostable.
Research & Development
Following many years of intense research and development in partnership with industry-leading companies and research universities, BIOAMMO now holds the exclusive global AAA patents for the use of our bioplastic material that has been specifically designed for shotshells, offering a unique combination of strength, flexibility and biodegradability .
The performance of our shotshells has also benefited from these years of R&D&I, for example with our ergonomically designed driving-wads which ensure that the shot (whether lead, steel or alloy) is ejected from the barrel with excellent ballistic efficiency and effectiveness.
The continuous R&D&I at the BIOAMMO factory is complemented by rigorous testing that is also carried out on site, constantly monitoring and improving the use and performance of our shotshells.
Our production lines also have advanced quality control systems to guarantee a premium product.
Biopolymers are obtained from agricultural waste such as cellulose, beetroot, sugar cane, potato and corn starch. To create the biopolymers, long chains of sugars are extracted and then synthesized to obtain the raw materials used to manufacture the wads and hulls.
BIOAMMO’s biopolymers are not affected by sunlight or moisture and therefore can be stored for longer periods than, for example, shotshells with water-soluble wads.
It is only when the wads and hulls come into contact with living organisms such as algae, fungi and bacteria that they are then naturally biosynthesized and transformed into a fertilizing biomass.
BIOAMMO’s continuous investment in R&D has enabled significant improvements to be made to the unique biopolymer formulations, for example, an increase in the elasticity of the materials to improve the performance of the shotshell in adverse environmental conditions.
Collecting used plastic hulls is worthwhile, but what happens when you get them home? Whether they are put them in the plastic recycling container or in the organic waste, they will usually end up in landfill and continue to pollute the environment as micro-plastics for hundreds of years.
Ultimately it is a fact that plastic shotshells pollute. BIOAMMO offers the complete solution to this.
Plastic hulls are not usually recycled. This is partly because of the financial, fuel and energy costs of transporting them to a facility, then removing the metal heads and recycling the plastic components.
Even when recycled, it is only a short-term “solution” as, due to the limited times that plastic can be recycled, the oil-based materials will still ultimately have to be disposed of (usually in landfill) or will be burnt (to then potentially contaminate the atmosphere).
As for the plastic wads that remain scattered in the countryside, these will continue to contaminate the environment for many future generations as they gradually degrade into micro-plastics and enter the various food chains that ultimately adversely impact on us humans
