Plastic Film Resins from Green Dot Bioplastics Receive TU?V Certification

Green Dot Bioplastics announces compostable film resins have received certification from TÜV AUSTRIA for home and industrial compostability.
Designed for Both Blown and Cast Film Extrusion
Green Dot’s new, expanded Terratek® BD line of compostable film resins offers a more sustainable alternative to traditional resins with significantly lower carbon content.
These formulations can be used as stand-alone films for Vertical Form Fill and Seal (VFFS); Horizontal Form Fill and Seal (HFFS) applications; as well as sealant webs in compostable laminations. Terratek® BD formulations are designed for use in both blown and cast film extrusion, in addition to offering grades suitable for injection molding and profile extrusion.
We specifically wanted to create film resins that are approved for both home and industrial composting while retaining the versatility and durability we are known for,” said Dave Szink, chief commercial officer. “These product formulations offer a more responsible option without sacrificing the performance required by brand owners. Having passed TU?V’s rigorous testing process, we are excited to see how our customers utilize Terratek® BD compostable film resins to produce high-quality, sustainable products.”
Highest Standard Third-party Verification
TU?V AUSTRIA Group is an independent Testing, Inspection, and Certification company covering industry, energy, infrastructure, transportation, certification, training, and digital services with more than 2,600 experts in more than 30 countries. On December 1, 2017, TU?V AUSTRIA Group integrated the OK compost & OK biobased conformity marks and certification activities into the newly founded subsidiary TU?V AUSTRIA Belgium.
Our goal is to continuously add new, high-performance resins to our line card for compostable packaging and single-use disposable applications. We are proud to say our products are TU?V certified, the highest standard third-party verification”, said Mark Remmert, chief executive officer.
