Basics Biodegradable

Basics Biodegradable Products Institute, USA Composting in North America Today, the BPI’s symbol is recognized by composting programs from San Francisco, California to Prince Edward Island in Eastern Canada. Many are surprised to learn of the strength of composting in North America. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the US collects and composts 56% of its yard trimmings (approx 16 million tons annually). In addition, diversion and composting of food scraps exists in many forms across the continent. For example, the cities of San Francisco and Oakland, California have active residential programs, which will promote growth throughout up and down the West Coast. Toronto and surrounding communities have implemented food scrap collection efforts for residents to augment “blue box” recycling programs. In the northeast US, the grocery industry is recognizing that 2/3rds of its wastes are food scraps. In areas with high landfills with tipping fees, composting can save them money. The growth trends for composting are expected to continue as communities and businesses look for ways to divert more materials and reduce the impacts of potential methane emissions from landfills as well as saving money. Biobased and Renewable Feedstocks The search for new materials is also being driven in North America by customers who want more sustainable alternatives. The use of biobased or renewable feedstocks can be a way of reducing a product’s environmental footprint. To fa- cilitate this movement, the BPI and its members supported the development of ASTM D6868 to measure the percentage of material using carbon from renewable sources. This is the only test of its kind in the world today and enables accurate labeling and claim substantiation. Today’s BPI Mission The BPI’s activities and reach have grown as the market for these new applications has expanded. However, the mission of the organization continues to focus on • The production, use and recovery biodegradable materials & organics recovery via composting • Development of the composting infrastructure, throughout North America • Utilization scientifically based specifications • Global harmonization of standards & specifications • Certification of products based on scientifically based specifications • Education www.bpiworld.org bioplastics [06/02] Vol. 1 37
