BioBag products are made from compostable bioplastic materials based on corn starch, other plant extracts and vegetable oils. These materials are not only degradabe, but certified biodegradable and compostable. The materials are easily compostable and biodegradable to water, CO2 and residual organic carbon (compost), leaving no harmful residues.
The materials are developed and patented by Novamont Laboratories in Italy.
The physical and mechanical properties of these materials are similar with conventional plastic. However there are some major differences:
Our liners are made from the latest type of biodegradable and compostable "Mater Bi" material. It is stronger and more flexible and specially suitable for larger bags and liners.
All BioBag products, bags, sacks, and films are certified compostable and biodegradable according to the European Standard EN 13432, the US Standard ASTM D6400 and the Australian Standard AS 4736.
BioBag holds compostable and biodegradable certificates issued by several certification institutions like AIB Vincotte (OK Compost), DIN Certco, BPI (USA) as well as other specialised certifications such as the GMO-free certificate.
