Novamont: Clear Environmental Communication

Novamont SpA, Novara, Italy, a leading company in the field of bioplastics, has decided to apply the AssoSCAI Environmental Label to publicize the characteristics of the Second Generation Mater-Bi used in its shopping bags.

The label clearly states information both on the biological origin (quantity of renewable biological raw materials) and on its biodegradability and compostability. It also carries information on recyclability (to reduce the possibility of cross-contamination with other non-biodegradable polymers), as well as the possibility of energy saving by incineration. The consumer is thus informed of the real significance of the term “bioplastic”, with the explicit declaration of the fundamental characteristics which justify the use of the prefix “bio-”.

Second Generation Mater-Bi is characterized by a series of specific environmental properties:

  • Organic carbon of biological origin: 50% (which corresponds to 56 kg of natural ingredients per 100 kg)
  • Recyclability by organic recovery thanks to its complete biodegradability and compostability.

The addition of the AssoSCAI Label to the declarations made by Second Generation Mater-Bi recognizes the recommendations of the CEN (European Committee for Standardization) Technical Report Recommendation for the terminology and characterization of biopolymers and bioplastics” (CEN/TR 15932).
