Novamont is an industrial company whose roots lie in the Montedison School of Materials Science and which was set up in 1989 with a view to implementing the ambitious project of some researchers from the chemical corporation: to integrate chemistry, agriculture and the environment. Ever since it was set up, Novamont has encouraged a new model of sustainable development and the transition from a product-based economy to a system-based economy, from a dissipative to a conservative approach to resources, through the use of renewable feedstock for the production of bioplastics for specific applications with a low environmental impact.
“Living Chemistry for Quality of Life”: to develop materials and biochemicals through the integration of chemistry and agriculture, by starting up third-generation biorefineries in the local areas and providing application solutions that ensure efficient use of resources throughout their entire life cycle, with advantages for the social, economic and environmental system.
MATER BI APPLICATIONS
- Biodegradable and compostable films
- Ready for traditional machines
- Easy to print, quick to seal.
- High productivity, natural breathability
- Ideal for shopping and separate waste collection
- Mater-Bi® in the environment
- Leading role in post-consumption
- It helps children…
- … and around the house
- Probably the best solution for agriculture.
- It protects objects… and foodstuffs
Mater-Bi® can be used to produce thermoformed trays and other rigid containers which are used to package read-to-eat food products. This packaging can be thrown away together with food waste in the same container and disposed of at composting facilities.
It can also be used to make compostable pots for nursery gardens.
With this technology Novamont has developed a new family of packaging products that have a low environmental impact because they are made from completely biodegradable and water-soluble natural materials (EN 14987 Plastics – Evaluation of disposability in waste water treatment plants – Test scheme for final acceptance and specifications).
