February 7, 2023
Sustainable plastic film resins certified for industrial and home composting.
Green Dot Bioplastics, a leading developer and supplier of bioplastic materials for innovative, sustainable packaging end-use, is proud to announce that our compostable film resins have received certification from TÜV AUSTRIA for home and industrial compostability.
Green Dot’s new, expanded Terratek® BD line of compostable film resins offers a more sustainable alternative to traditional resins with significantly lower carbon content. These formulations can be used as stand-alone films for Vertical Form Fill and Seal (VFFS); Horizontal Form Fill and Seal (HFFS) applications; as well as sealant webs in compostable laminations. Terratek® BD formulations are designed for use in both blown and cast film extrusion, in addition to offering grades suitable for injection molding and profile extrusion.
“We specifically wanted to create film resins that are approved for both home and industrial composting while retaining the versatility and durability we are known for,” said Dave Szink, Chief Commercial Officer. “These product formulations offer a more responsible option without sacrificing the performance required by brand owners. Having passed TÜV’s rigorous testing process, we are excited to see how our customers utilize Terratek® BD compostable film resins to produce high-quality, sustainable products.”
TÜV AUSTRIA Group is a leading independent Testing, Inspection, and Certification company covering industry, energy, infrastructure, transportation, certification, training, and digital services with more than 2,600 experts in more than 30 countries. On December 1, 2017, TÜV AUSTRIA Group integrated the OK compost & OK biobased conformity marks and certification activities into the newly founded subsidiary TÜV AUSTRIA Belgium.
“Our goal is to continuously add new, high-performance resins to our line card for compostable packaging and single-use disposable applications. We are proud to say our products are TÜV certified, the highest standard third-party verification”, said Mark Remmert, Chief Executive Officer.
