Bio-based and biodegradable products designed to provide sustainable solutions for specific environmental concerns
Novamont is able to provide a range of bio-based and biodegradable products (compostable bioplastics, biolubricants, bioherbicides, cosmetic ingredients) designed in a circular perspective and conceived as sustainable solutions for specific environmental and social concerns, such as water and soil pollution. Mater-Bi is the innovative family of bioplastics developed by Novamont research. It is biodegradable and compostable according to the European standard EN 13432 and other international standards and has characteristics of use very similar to those of traditional plastics. Mater-Bi has been conceived as a solution especially for those applications when recycling is technically or economically impracticable or when the possibility of dispersion into the environment is high. In these applications biodegradability and compostability represent an added value (e.g. shopping bags that can be reused to collect organic waste or foodware products “contaminated” with leftovers), or serve a function (e.g. mulch films biodegradable in soil). Matrol-Bi rapidly biodegradable biolubricants and greases, obtained from renewable resources, represent an optimum solution especially for those machines operating in ecologically sensitive areas such as agriculture, forestry, the seas or cities. These biolubricants in fact ensure the functionality and integrity of all equipment, but if accidentally discharged into the environment they do not reduce the fertility of soils, they do not build up toxicity in groundwater and biodegrade in a few days without leaving any trace. Bioherbicides based on pelargonic acid from vegetable origin represent a solution for the management of weed control that combine productivity, safety and respect for the environment. Finally biodegradable ingredients for cosmetics offer a real solution to microplastics, ensuring complete biodegradation since they are "readily biodegradable" products, making it possible to avoid the contamination of sewage sludges and the dispersion of microplastics into the sea.
