At BBC Packaging we take the environment very seriously, and we work very closely with our suppliers to try to offer our customers the highest quality products with the least possible impact on the environment.
At BBC Packaging we follow very closely the different research that is being carried out in the plastics sector to obtain materials that, while preserving the qualities that make plastic an ideal material for the protection of products, are biodegradable in the environment. .
Unfortunately, today there is no additive that can be added to plastic to transform it into 100% biodegradable material, nor is there any type of plastic of plant origin that is.
That is why the European Commission had to make a clarification on the treatment to be given to the so-called biodegradable plastics or compostable plastics, described in its directive.
[…] In conclusion, the Commission services invite you to respect the following principles during the transposition period: […]
– Not to introduce single use plastic market restrictions based on substitution with ‘biodegradable’ single use plastic alternatives because, in accordance with Article 4 of the SUP Directive, this is not a valid justification to introduce market restrictions in derogation of Article 18 Directive 94/62/EC on Packaging and Packaging Waste. Please note that the SUP Directive’s definition of plastic includes biodegradable plastics, and no exceptions are provided for biodegradable plastic products.
