Biodegradable Raw Material
The material used for the production of iNature is the flagship of the innovative Bioplastics on the market.
It differs from normal plastics for two important reasons:
- Biodegradability: as required by EN13432, a material is defined as biodegradable if, under controlled composting conditions, it degrades by at least 90% within 6 months (180 days); in the biodegradation process, the plastic degrades into carbon dioxide, water (or methane), mineral salts and biomass, by microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and algae.
- The use of raw materials from renewable sources: the material is made with a percentage of raw material derived from renewable biomass, such as cereal starch, sugar cane, beet, cellulose and vegetable oils, contributing to the preservation of fossil resources, reduction of greenhouse gases (among the main causes of the phenomenon of global warming), and the reduction of water consumption.
