Kompuestos unveils potato-based bioplastic

Kompuestos, a producer of sustainable plastic compounds, has developed a bioplastic made entirely from potato starch which reportedly biodegrades in four weeks.

The formulation of this bioplastic, which is part of Kompuestos’ Biokomp range, aims to replace traditional supermarket plastic bags for fruit and vegetables and thus significantly reduce carbon footprint. This and three other products of the company’s Biokomp range have reportedly obtained the “OK Compost” label from TÜV Austria which certifies that they are 100% biodegradable in a specific period.

The Biokomp range is based on biodegradable resins made from different starches derived from corn, potato and various types of cereals, as well as other polymers of renewable origin. According to the company, these resins can be processed by standard processing equipment.
