Since plants use carbon dioxide in the air during their growth, the production of Ingeo® bio-polymer generates less greenhouse gas, than the production of equivalent fossil fuel-based polymers.
• Dyne-a-pak Nature® meets the ASTM-D6400 standard and are certified by the Biodegradable Product Institute (BPI). The BPI approval means that Dyne-a-pak Nature® foam trays will break-down and biodegrade quickly and safely in 180 days in a composting facility that is professionally managed (industrial or municipal). Collection programs for compostable packaging are slowly starting to develop in North America, but may not be available in your area. In fact, very few of these programs currently exist. Please consult your local authorities for more information;
• Because conditions in domestic compost bins can vary greatly, Dyne-a-pak Nature® foam trays are not made for domestic composting (garden compost bins or piles), where their composting will be very slow, unless the compost is very active and regularly mixed;
• The Ingeo® bio-polymer (PLA) is recyclable but, since this material is relatively new, very few collection programs are currently available;
• As composting and collection programs continue to develop for Ingeo® bio-polymer packaging, Dyne-a-pak Nature® foam trays will become a good solution for reducing carbon footprint and help build a better future.
