New biodegradable plastic marketed for foodstuffs


Biodegradable and compostable Ecomann PHA, from Bioresins, is being marketed for food contact applications after independent tests established compliance with European Commission Directive 2002/72/EC (and its amendment 2007/19/EC).

 The EU seal of approval enables the UK-based supplier to pursue European food and drink manufacturers.
“The green light by the EU corroborates what we’ve already discussed with major brands owners but it was good to get official authorisation from the SGS test house,” said Mike Hughes, general manager of Bioresins.
The versatile polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) is derived from GM-free, non-food maize starch grown in China, and represents one of the best opportunities to date for large volume packagers to include in their products up to 100% sustainable content plus the potential to home compost, claimed the company.
