Compostable bags

BioTuf compost-able bags are made using BASF’s Ecoflex Copolyes-ter and will biode-grade swiftly and safely during municipal or commercial composting. These bags are manufactured using a unique technology called Minapol, which is made from calcium carbonate, and is used to create a compound for can liners, trash bags and other bags.

BASF’s Ecoflex synthetic biodegradable plastic, manufactured in Germany, is an aliphatic-aromatic copolyester which is ideal for bags, paper coating, disposable packaging or agricultural sheeting because it decomposes in soil or in compost within a few weeks without leaving any residues.
