Natur-Tec® biobased and compostable plastics are manufactured using patented and/or proprietary technologies and are intended to replace conventional petroleum-based plastics. Natur-Tec has an exceptionally broad bioplastics portfolio which spans flexible film, rigid injection molded materials and engineered plastics. Natur-Tec products do not contain any conventional plastics such as polyethylene, polypropylene or polystyrene. Natur-Tec products are derived from renewable resources, per the ASTM D6800 standard and require far less energy to manufacture and significantly reduce greenhouse has emissions and pollutants compared to conventional plastic materials.
Natur-Tec biodegradable and compostable finished products, such as bags, and cutlery are engineered to be fully compostable and meet all international standards for compostable plastics, such as the US standard ASTM D6400. Natur-Bag® compostable bags are certified 100% compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI). Natur-Ware® biobased and compostable cutlery is made from Ingeo™ (biopolymer), an annually renewable plant based material.
Natur-Tec products and technologies are environmentally-responsible solutions to help both industry and consumers move towards a carbon neutral footprint.
