Compostable Bio Plastic

PACKSPEC launches a Compostable Bio Plastic.

Mater-Bi® is the brand name of a completely biodegradable and compostable bioplastic that contain renewable resources such as starch and plant oil.

Mater-Bi® is used to produce environmentally friendly products to replace most common plastics/bags that have historically been produced made from petroleum based resins.

The Italian compostable bioplastics manufacturer Novamont, also recently revealed that its Mater-Bi bioplastic has been found to be fully marine biodegradable. (source: HYDRA Institute for Marine Science, Germany, University of Siena)

These studies showed that samples of Mater-Bi® bioplastics exposed to marine microorganisms demonstrated the same levels of biodegradation as cellulose and paper, with the speed of biodegradation increasing as the size of the bioplastic pieces decreased. This means that small particles of plastic known as microplastics, created by the biodegradation of Mater-Bi® are not persistent in the environment and fully biodegrade after 20-30 days.

The intrinsic biodegradability of Mater-Bi® product is a factor that can mitigate most ecological risks, and prevents the pollution of waterways and the marine environment, 80 per cent of which is caused by inadequate management of waste on land

What are the components of Mater-Bi®?

Corn starch:

– From non-genetically modified plants

– From European cultivation according to GAP (EU common agricultural policy)

– The resources for Mater-Bi® are neither cultivated on deforested areas nor on untouched natural areas.

Plant oil:

Oil from non-genetically modified plants, which are adapted to arid places and barely require irrigation, is used to produce components of third-generation Mater-Bi® material.

Neither soya nor palm oil is used for the production of Mater-Bi®.
