Plastic Articles that Safely Biodegrade in Water
DaniMer Scientific recently introduced a new film resin which has received certification as “Biodegradable in Marine Environments” from SSCCP, an internationally recognized research institute located in Milan, Italy. This unique characteristic offers diverse end of life options to the consumer while providing confirmation of environmental safety for converted film articles if it finds itself in a stream or our oceans.
This recent certification follows previous recognition for DaniMer's film resins, including Vincotte OK Compost, OK Home, OK Water and OK Soil certifications along with SSCCP certification for Anaerobic Digestion. These certifications confirm degradation attributes of the DaniMer 112291 while providing the film converting industry with a biodegradable resin unlike any other in the world. In addition to the environmental aspects of the film grade resin, the DaniMer product enables a soft, highly flexible, puncture resistant film that offers an excellent surface for printing.
“The Biodegradability in Marine Environment certification is an important breakthrough for the bioplastics industry,” says Scott Tuten, Senior Vice President of DaniMer Scientific. “Most importantly, this certification confirms that certain biodegradable plastics can offer multiple end of life options which is a unique value and broadens the markets we serve.”
