First Biokomp® grades for biodegradable and compostable films certified OK Compost

28.02.2019

Eco-conscious consumers are seeking sustainable alternatives to conventional petrol-based polymers.

mBiokomp® is a family of biobased and compostable thermoplastic resins made from different starches and other biologically sourced polymers capable of replacing well-established conventional plastics and able to improve the faced end-of-life challenges. Biokomp® resins can be processed by conventional extrusion, cast film, blown, sheet, extrusion coating, and injection molding lines without extra technological investment.

Kompuestos® (Barcelona, Spain) has been awarded the “OK Compost” and “Seedling Logo” conformity marks by TÜV Austria for several of its Biokomp® grades. The company is looking forward to completing its range of compostable solutions through 2019 in order to bring sustainable solutions to the current challenging scenario of the plastic market.
Biokomp® grades for biodegradable and compostable films deliver very similar properties to the conventional plastics and are specially designed for single-use applications (shopper bags, refuse bags, fruit & vegetable bags), and films with a difficult collection system.
