Biodegradable and Compostable. Yes, now it is a mass scale option.
Biodegradable and Compostable materials are a chapter in packaging which has generated a lot of discussion. The fact is that Biodegradable and Compostable products are both a choice of policy and image for a retailer. While in the recent past compostable products have been linked with exuberant pricing, low strength and small capacity, nowadays all these issues are overall addressed, and EN13432 products are less expensive, in fact they can reach very competitive levels, their strength is constantly improving, and global capacity has grow significantly. While Biodegradable and Compostable solutions are not the most proper for all applications, they can be applied in the retail industry in mass scale, also in parallel with other materials. If combined with renewable crops, correct policy, and product design adjusted to the needs of a chain, Bio and Compo can be performance stars.
