Living chemistry for quality of life
Novamont is the worlds leading company in the production of bioplastics and in the development of biochemicals through the integration of chemistry, the environment and agriculture.
It promotes a model of bioeconomy conceived as territorial regeneration, based on the reindustrialization of no more competitive sites, on an integrated and sustainable agricultural value chain and on products designed as solutions to environmental and social concerns.
Mater-Bi is the innovative family of bioplastics developed by Novamont research. It is biodegradable and compostable according to the European standard EN 13432 and other international standards and has characteristics of use very similar to those of traditional plastics.
In order to protect ecosystems, avoiding soil and water pollution, Mater-Bi has been conceived for applications in which biodegradability and compostability represent an added value, such as shopping bags that can be reused to collect organic waste or foodware products “contaminated” with leftovers, or serve a function, such as mulch films. The main fields of application are: separate waste collection, agriculture, large retail sector, disposable foodserviceware, packaging.
