Technology

PlasticFri™ is a proprietary process which uses renewable resources for making a material that looks and works like conventional (petroleum-based) plastic, but it is 100% biodegradable, compostable, completely non-toxic and free from conventional plastic materials. This means it contains no substances or materials that are harmful to animals or nature and can be composted in less than 90 days.

Our patent-pending technology is all about minimizing the environmental impact of conventional petroleum-based plastic by making an environmentally-friendly alternative.

We do that by using abundant, low-cost and renewable resources, mainly coming from agricultural-waste and non-edible plants

PlasticFri™ is 100% biodegradable, compostable, non-toxic and compliant with the European standard EN 13432.

To ensure a product meets the European standard, 4 tests are carried out:

1. Biodegradation test: the chemical degradability of the polymer.

2. Eco-toxicity test: Verify whether the composted product has an adverse effect on plants.

3. Disintegration test: the physical disintegration into very small fragments.

4. Heavy metals content test: the amount has to be below given maximum values.
