Tot 10 % aan composteerbaar kunstof heeft geen effect op mechanische eigenschappen recyclaten

27 januari 2014

Bioplastics are biobased, compostable, or both. Biobased plastics films are chemically identical to their conventional counterparts and are easy to manage in recycling streams. Compostable plastics are designed for organic recycling and should be collected accordingly. They are marked for this purpose with logos such as the Seedling.
Up to 10 percent compostable plastics mixing with conventional plastics in post-consumer recycling streams show no or negligible impact on the mechanical performance of the recyclates. When compostable plastics end up in recycling streams, the prevalent sorting technologies are able to sort them out (Persbericht European Bioplastics, 20 januari 2014).
