Case study: trays with compostable material
In view of the pressure exerted by the European Regulations for 2030 on the circular economy in the packaging sector, the need to incorporate products on food industry shelves made from sustainable and environmentally responsible materials is becoming more and more immediate.
From Prime Biopolymers, bioplastics development company, we present catering trays made of compostable material that have become the ideal and definitive alternative to the traditional plastic with which these products have been made in the food sector.
Trays with opaque and transparent compostable material
These sustainable catering trays come in both opaque and transparent formats and have been developed using ZIMIA Y700 and ZIMIA Y300 bioplastic grades. It is compostable material and, in addition, it does not generate problems when processed by conventional machinery.
“It is a material that reduces inherent fragility of PLA, thus extending its range of use to different applications”
Manuel Suárez, Director of Prime Biopolymers
This product, thanks to its reduced fragility, can be used in different applications, such as catering trays or take-away food packaging.
From our Innovation and Development department, we emphasise that given its good impact behaviour, these ZIMIA bioplastic grades are ideal for applications that require low storage temperatures.
“We have very postive feedback on the product. It is a definitive solution, which is what Prime Biopolymers seeks to provide to the plastics industry”, says our director, Manuel Suarez.
As Manuel Suarez explained, the finel objective of Prime Biopolymers is the contribution of added value to the packaging sector in order to achieve production based on a circular economy that adapts to consumer demand.
