Enviroment care

Weltplast  is the first company in this area, which for years has a complete technology for recycling of polymeric materials, which signi-ficantly contributed to the protection and preservation of the environment, and initiated activities to introduce an international system for protection of the enviroment ISO 14001.

The primary focus in every process of production and in total product range is a concern and care of nature.

Biodegradable and composting products
Biodegradable polymers are environment friendly alternative to preserve fossil fuels and reduce CO2 emissions. As a necessary alternative to the ecological viability and balance, there was intensive development of renewable raw materials and accelerated production of biodegradable plastics and composting products.

cowelt® products biodegradability and composting
Weltplast Company, folowing the practice of protecting and preserving the environment and adopting the criteria of sustainable development, has developed a range of environmentally friendly products, the protected name  EcoWelt®.

slika_3EcoWelt® products are completely biodegradable and composting. Obtained by extrusion process of BASF raw materials, and BASF is a leading manufacturer of synthetic 100% biodegradable and tne composting plastic (certified by DIN CERTCO No. 7W0011 and 7W0085) solely bio-based.
EcoWelt® packaging products fully comply with the requirements of EN 13 432, which establishes criteria for biodegradation and composting, as well as compost quality, and all harmonized with the European Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste.

What is biodegradation?

2Biodegradation is the biochemical process of conversion of material into the water, biomass, carbon dioxide or methane in terms of microorganisams activity. The process of degradation of polymers consists of two stages. The first is the process of reducing the polymer chain by breaking carbon bonds in terms of the effect of heat, humidity and the presence of microorganisms. The second is part of the process of degradation which begins when the lower molecular chains become carbon energy sources of microorganisms. This process was confirmed in the full sense of the biodegradation only when compounds become food and microorganisms are transformed into water, biomass or carbon dioxide.
Total world production of biodegradable and composting plastic in the world in a year 2008 is estimated at 600 thousand tons. The renewable bio-based biopolymers, such as corn starch and polyester polilactonic acid accounts for about 85% of total world production.

What is composting?
Composting is a biological process in which the controlled temperature conditions and activities of certain microorganisms (composting cycle), leads to decomposition of bio-polymers on the basis of the same speed as the decomposition of other things of organic waste, which formed water, carbon dioxide and heavy metals. The resulting organic compost is completely environmentally neutral in terms of agriculture and has the same properties as other materials.Biodegradable bio-based polymers can also be defined as composting ones only if they meet very stringent requirements of European standard EN 13 432:
• degree of biodegradation> 90% in the period of 180 days
• degree of disintegration of polymers> 90% in the period of 90 days

DIN CERTCO certification  Ecowelt® products
EcoWelt® Weltplast  products are registered by certification body DIN CERTCO from Berlin. Registration is conducted under the number 7P0257 including the registration biodegradable color printing.Special certification is carried for food packaging bags and bags that come into contact with foodstuff. Registration is conducted under the number 7P0258. Certified biodegradable and composting Ecowelt® products are identified by the license mark. This mark guarantees consumers that the product Ecowelt® is composting and that after use can be stored in organic waste.

These signs are an important indicator of quality all over the world. Only products that are made of biodegradable materials can have this sign..

® products, health safety of products
EcoWelt® products fully comply with the requirements of Directive 2002/72/EC relating to polymer materials and products in its application come directly into contact with foodstuff.
For the EU countries the requirements for products coming into contact with food are further defined by regulation EC No. 1935/2004. Ecowelt® products are also completely harmless to health and safety of children fully comply with the requirements of European standard EN 71 Safety of toys - 3 Part: Migration of certain elements.


Ecowelt® products, the advantages in applying process
Properties of  EcoWelt® products (films, carry bags, garbage bags, freezer bags etc.) are far superior compared to the polyethylene film, since their mechanical and physical properties are better. EcoWelt ® products are ideal for use in food packaging, especially frozen food. From the standpoint of freezing food, we should point out twice lower property of oxygen permeability compared to polyethylene.
5-ecoEcowelt® products are very supple and provide a sense of softness touch.
Great to lying, and when printing biodegradable paint is used..
The production process of EcoWelt® product is very economical and reduces electric
energy, since the melting temperature, compared to polyethylene, is even lower to 30 ° C.

Ecowelt® products, the benefits of the product

- EcoWelt® products are 100% biodegradable and composting

- EcoWelt® products as environmentally creative solutions provide great opportunities for the development of packaging industry and agriculture
- EcoWelt® products are the only alternative to conventional plastics.

ecowelt-dvije-vreciceThis particular bag has the same properties as well as the standard polyethylene shopping bags.
When you put it together with organic waste, disposed of in a landfill, microbes will "eat" the bag and its contents turn into water, carbon dioxide and biomass in a few weeks.
This bag is used not only for shopping but also as a valuable aid in making compost as long as we live, in harmony with nature

After beeing reusable for some time, shopping bag, can be used as the bag for organic waste because it is biodegradable and composting.
