The extent of their biodegradation is greater than 90% over a period of 180 days, and the degree of polymer disintegration is over 90% over a period of 90 days.
All products are obtained by extrusion of 100% biodegradable and bio-based composting polymers.
EcoWelt bio products consist of:
- carrier bags
- organic waste disposal bags
- freezer bags
- bags for household use
The properties of EcoWelt bio products are superior to polyethylene film, as their mechanical and physical properties are way better. We use biodegradable inks when printing products from this line, and the process itself is economical, because it reduces electricity consumption, compared to processes that include classic polyethylene. EcoWelt bio products are ideal for food packaging, especially that of frozen food.
In accordance with EU legislation
