Bioplastics successfully meet all EU safety standards

Products made from bio-based plastics must undergo the same testing procedures as conventional plastic products to access the market of the European Union (EU), in order to exclude any health risk for consumers.

Plastics intended to be certified as biodegradable or compostable must undergo additional tests. “Products made of bioplastics thus pass even more tests than conventional plastic products,” explained Hasso von Pogrell, Managing Director of European Bioplastics (EUBP).

Biome Technologies plc is a growth oriented, commercially driven technology group. The Group’s primary activity is the development of its fast growing business in bioplastics. The Group comprises two divisions: Biome Bioplastics and Stanelco RF Technologies.
