ecovio ®


Certified compostable polymer based on renewable raw materials. Ecovio is a high-quality and versatile bioplastic of BASF. It is a certified finished compound, that has a variable biobased content, it is printable and weldable. Thanks to its special chemical structure, ecovio® can be biodegraded by microorganisms and their enzymes. In the conditions of an industrial composting plant – high temperature, high moisture, defined oxygen content – biodegradation only takes a few weeks. The products manufactured with this material are just as high-performing and strong in use as conventional plastics. The main areas of use for ecovio® are plastic films: organic waste bags, dual-use bags (first for shopping, then for organic waste) or agricultural films. Furthermore, compostable packaging solutions such as paper-coating, shrink films, foam packaging and injection molding products can be produced with ecovio®.
