A real sign of sustainable development. There is such a thing as genuinely sustainable development. Since 1989, Novamont researchers have been working on an ambitious project that combines the chemical industry, agriculture and the environment: “Living Chemistry for Quality of Life”. Its objective has been to create products that have a low environmental impact. The innovative result of Novamont’s research is the new bioplastic Mater-Bi ® .The Mater-Bi ® polymer comes from maize starch and other vegetable starches; it is completely biodegradable and compostable. Mater-Bi ® performs like plastic, but it saves energy, contributes to reducing the greenhouse effect, and at the end of its life cycle, it closes the loop by changing into fertile humus. Everyone’s dream has become a reality. Living Chemistry for Quality of Life. www.novamont.com Mater-Bi ® : certified and recommended biodegradability and compostability.
