Narendra Plastic has developed alternatives to non-degradable plastic bags that are made of materials that are derived from non-petroleum sources like starch and are fully compostable.
What are Compostable Materials
Compostable materials are plastics that are biodegradable and compostable. Products made of compostable materials biodegrade in the landfills or home and industrial composters to form biomass which can be mixed into soil.
Types of Compostable Materials
Testing Standards and Certifications
Bags made of Compostable material comply with standards for composability like:
- Indian Standard IS:17088
- European Standard EN 13432
- Australian Standard AS 4736
- American Standard ASTM D 6400
Our bags are certified by CPCB, India to be compliant to IS:17088 and are “OK Compost” and “OK Compost HOME” certified by Vincotte, Austria for compliance to EN 13432.
Benefits, features of Bags made of compostable materials
Bags made of compostable materials are strong and tough – suitable for applications like carry bags, produce bags, garbage bags etc.
These bags completely breakdown through biodegradation and turn to compost or manure that can be mixed with soil to promote plant growth.
These are suitable alternatives to non-biodegradable plastics.
