ecovio® – certified compostable polymer with biobased content

ecovio® is a high-quality and versatile bioplastic from BASF.

The primary advantages: It is certified compostable and biobased.

The main areas of use for ecovio® are plastic films such as organic waste bags, fruit and vegetable bags, carrier bags with dual-use (first for shopping, then for organic waste) or agricultural films.

Furthermore, compostable packaging solutions such as paper-coating, shrink and cling films, foam packaging as well as injection molding and thermoformed products can be produced with ecovio®.

Certified Compostable

Thanks to its special chemical structure, ecovio® can be biodegraded by microorganisms and their enzymes.

Under the conditions of an industrial composting plant – respective temperature, high moisture, defined oxygen content – biodegradation only takes a few weeks. ecovio® offers various product grades that meet the following, international and national standards and regulations for industrial composting.

Biobased content

With ecovio®, BASF offers a certified compostable polymer which also contains variable biobased content.

It consists of the compostable BASF polymer ecoflex®, polylactid acid (PLA) and other additives.

In contrast to simple starch based bioplastics, ecovio® is more resistant to mechanical stress and moisture.

High performance

ecovio® products are just as high-performing and strong in use as conventional plastics.

An ecovio® bag can take the same load as its polyethylene counterpart.

The product properties were designed such that the products only fully biodegrade in compost after use.
