Developed by company’s Kirchberg, Switzerland, product development group to service the growing demand in European markets, material composition—including the adhesive—is fully biodegradable and compostable according to European regulation EN 13432 and US ASTM D6400. Meeting industrial compostable standards, 90% of the material will be composted approximately 70 days after disposal, company says.
Reportedly, little to no curing time is needed, which provides an optimized supply chain time reduction of more than one week. Laminate is available as printed rollstock and as premade pouches. Suggested packaging applications include dry cereal or grains, tea and coffee products, powders or tablets, and wholesome or natural products.
