About us ADBioplastics presents a compostable bioplastic which can be used in applications food, beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical packaging.
This is the bioplastic PLA-Premium. Pablo Delfino, director of business development at ADBioplastics, explains that this material "is biobased because it comes from natural products such as corn, sugar cane and/or beets, as well as being compostable, since it disintegrates in a maximum of three months in industrial conditions”.
In addition, the certificate OK Compost of the certification body TÜV Austria verifies the compostability of PLA-Premium, which is also suitable for contact with food, in accordance with applicable European legislation (FCM).
