bioplastic_bagItalian bioplastics firm Novamont and French plastic films producer Barbier Group have announced a partnership to develop a new kind of bioplastic lightweight bag for fruits and vegetables.

Billed as an alternative to traditional non-biodegradable and non-compostable plastic packaging, Ma-Ter-Bio (the bag for planet Earth), is made of a material of plant origin, in accordance with the dictates of French law and its implementing decree, wholly compostable in home composting and obtained from locally sourced starch and sunflower oil.

Ma-Ter-Bio’s percentage of renewable content is of at least 35%, but can already be increased to over 50%.
