TricorBraun Flex has received the BPI Certification Mark from the Biodegradable Products Institute for its fully-compostable, plant-based packaging product, Biotré 3.0.

TricorBraun Flex has received the BPI Certification Mark from the Biodegradable Products Institute for its fully-compostable, plant-based packaging product, Biotré 3.0. The product is made from high barrier materials that prevent water, oil, oxygen, gas or light from permeating. Made with plant-based and compostable resources, such as wood pulp, Biotré reduces the amount of fossil fuel and mineral resources typically used in flexible packaging options. The packaging is industrial compostable in compliance with the ASTM D6868 testing standard for compostable plastics coated with paper.

The BPI Certification Mark ensures that a third party has confirmed the product is truly compostable and meets certain standards. The certification ensures products are made with the correct components and the correct tests have been used to ensure safety for the environment.

“We’re proud to have this distinction from the Biodegradable Products Institute for our Biotré 3.0 product,” said Glenn Sacco, vice president, commercial, TricorBraun Flex, in a press release. “TricorBraun is committed to pursuing sustainable packaging. Since we first developed Biotré in 2011, we’ve continually worked to improve it to provide our customers with packaging options that help to protect both product and planet. Biotré 3.0 is the leading product in the market for customers seeking a fully compostable, high barrier, plant-based package.”
