INZEA PROVIDES A SOLUTION FOR COMPOSTABILITY
Compostability is an efficient recovery route for organic waste. Compost helps to prevent desertification and its production is essential for a favourable environment and fertile soil for the cultivation of food products, such as fruits and vegetables that help us to have a healthy diet.
Therefore, it is necessary to collect and manage organic waste efficiently in order to produce quality compost and avoid contamination with other materials. By introducing compostable materials in everyday products such as bags, packaging or coffee capsules, we avoid the contamination of organic matter and promote the correct management of the brown bin.
The alternative of compostable biopolymers
Compostability or organic recycling is the alternative that offers a second life to organic friction, and also provides a sustainable solution that helps to reduce the costs of managing conventional plastic materials after use.
INZEA’s compostable biopolymers offer recovery possibilities for applications that would otherwise be complex to manage, such as multi-material packaging and containers with organic waste.
Advantages of compostable products
Compostable materials add value in packaging that is in contact with organic content because at the end of its life cycle it can be managed in a composting plant.
On the other hand, conventional plastics have to undergo a large number of processes in order to be recycled and often end up in landfill, which is both economically and environmentally costly compared to the simplicity of the composting process.
