Compostable Films

Tbs-pack's compostable bio-films according to EU standard EN 13 432 (Din Certco) are characterised by their sustainability and strong redundancy. Another advantage of these films is their composition of renewable raw materials (lactic acid, corn starch, potato starch or sugar beet), which makes it possible to compost the films at home or in industrial composting plants. All these properties not only contribute to environmental protection, but also make our bio films the ideal packaging solution when it comes to protecting and keeping your products fresh. 


1. Use of 100 % renewable raw materials

2. Reduced ecological footprint

3. Immense reduction in thickness to petrochemical products

4. No disposal / license costs (packaging tax)
