The company Novamont produces a series of innovative bioplastics under the brand name Mater-Bi. Mater-Bi is made from non-genetically modified corn starch and vegetable oils that are cultivated in Europe.
Mater-Bi can be used to create all kinds of compostable tableware. However our Mater-Bi products are made out of Mater-Bi foil. This foil is then used to produce compostable T-shirt bags and compostable waste bags and bin liners. All grades of Mater-Bi are entirely biodegradable and compostable in accordance with the European composting norm EN-13432. The properties and characteristics of Mater-Bi are relatively similar to those of traditional plastics. Mater-Bi is however, a more sustainable and compostable option.
