Novamont: “Mater-Bi” selected for compostable bags

Bioplastics specialist Novamont (Novara / Italy; www.novamont.com) said its biodegradable “Mater-Bi” polymer has been selected by Italian food and restaurant business Eataly for its carrier bags and disposable tableware. Eataly is phasing out traditional plastic carrier bags and replacing them with the Mater-Bi bags, which are naturally biodegradable and compostable in accordance with European regulations, said Novamont.

“This agreement with Eataly is an important sign that a culture is developing based on economic and environmental sustainability and the minimisation of refuse,” commented Novamont CEO Catia Bastioli.
