We're are excited to be offering this all-in-one professional and semi-automatic top seal system to pack and heat-seal safely and hygienically for take-away and delivery.
Two years ago we commented in a blog article on the upcoming European ban on single-use plastics. As of July 3, 2021, new measures by the European Commission (EC) will enter into force that prohibit the use of single-use plastic to reduce the plastic soup. This prohibition is summarized under the "Single Use Plastic Directive" (SUP), an EU directive that bans the most polluting single-use plastic products. For a large part of these articles, Bio Futura has been offering only sustainable alternatives for more than a decade already.
Additionally, further measures are currently being developed by the national government to contribute to an improved recycling infrastructure and consumer awareness by providing information about reusable alternatives. With our specialist knowledge and tailor-made advice, we help our customers to facilitate the transition to products and (compostable) packaging made from renewable raw materials. We will ensure that you meet all measures and requirements on time. Simultaneously, we are still relentless in our focus on delivering sustainable quality at every stage of our value chain.
First and foremost, we wish you all the best for 2021, a year in which we deliver the final blow to the pandemic and slowly resume our old life. We sincerely hope that your business thrives or finds its way forward again. After a week of stock and system updates, we are as always at your service with a complete range of compostable packaging materials made from renewable materials.

The German Witzenhausen Institute and the University of Bayreuth stated in a recent study that compostable bioplastic bags, certified according to the European standard EN 13432, do not pose any problems to the quality of the compost.
For over ten years, Bio Futura has been offering a wide range of sustainable alternatives to traditional plastic disposable tableware. Next to that, we are working on circular solutions for our sustainable disposables. In line with our vision and mission, we only offer compostable disposables and packaging made from renewable resources without compromising on quality. Together with our partners and customers we are actively driving the transition towards a low-carbon circular economy by preventing plastic waste. As Bio Futura is thoughtfully taking actions in this direction and because of strong customer demand, we have recently introduced an additional product line of biobased reusable durables. The marketplace has finally proven to be ready for sustainable durables. This new product category contributes to phase out single use - oil based - plastics and fits perfectly with our existing philosophy and know-how.
Let's talk about compostability and what you can do at home, yourself, everyday, no excuses: Compost is organic material that can be added to soil to help plants grow. Food scraps and yard waste together currently make up more than 28 percent of what we throw away, and should be composted instead. No bio-waste should end up in normal waste, where the valuable nutrients are destroyed in the incinerator or landfills, contributing to methane gas production, a potent greenhouse gas.
