European Bioplastics: New Legislative Approach on Bioplastics
The Latvian representation of the bioplastics industry, has initiated a cabinet ordinance that is preparing to implement EN 13432 and EN 14995 into national legislation. European Bioplastics, Berlin, Germany, the European representation of the bioplastics industry, supports the new legislative approach in Latvia.
A cabinet ordinance initiated by Homo ecos, the newest member of the Congress of the European and National Bioplastics Organisations and Networks (Cebon), which is coordinated by European Bioplastics, is currently under way to define biodegradable plastics as certified compostable according to EN 13432/14995. “At the moment we are strongly committed to the translation of the European standards for compostable bioplastics EN 13432 and EN 14995 into Latvian. This is necessary so that the standards can be taken over in national legislation,” says Andrejs Viks, spokesperson/board member of Homo ecos.
