Compostable resins, also known as biodegradable resins, are a type of plastic made from natural materials that can break down into organic matter under certain environmental conditions. Unlike traditional plastics, which can take hundreds or even thousands of years to decompose, compostable resins can break down in as little as six months under the right conditions.
Compostable resins are typically made from a variety of materials, including corn starch, sugarcane, potato starch, and other biodegradable polymers. These materials are used to create a plastic-like substance that can be molded into various shapes and forms.

Compostable resin is a type of bioplastic made from renewable, natural materials such as corn starch, potato starch, sugarcane, or cellulose derived from wood or agricultural waste. These materials are broken down into a pulp or powder form and then combined with other ingredients such as vegetable oils, resins, and waxes to create a plastic-like material that can be molded into various shapes.
Compostable resins are designed to break down quickly and completely when composted under specific conditions, typically within 180 days. They are also designed to be free of harmful toxins and to have a lower carbon footprint than traditional petroleum-based plastics. Compostable resins are commonly used in food packaging, utensils, bags, and other disposable products as a more sustainable alternative to conventional plastics.
Fruit bags / organic waste bags / food packaging
An important market for compostable resins is flexible packaging. Tote bags made from compostable resins are the perfect alternative to lightweight non-biodegradable plastic bags because they offer all the benefits of conventional bags with the added benefit of biodegradability and compostability. Applications for these tote bags range from grocery plastic bags and plastic film to food packaging. They are also the ideal solution for organic waste collection bags as they can be recycled organically into fertile compost.
Disposable Plastic Products
Foodservice bioplastic products (plates, cutlery, hot and cold beverage cups, straws, sand mixers) made from compostable resins are 100% biodegradable and compostable.
Compostable resins are also used in a variety of packaging applications for fresh and dried foods and non-food products, including bags, pouches, sealing and cling film, and ribbed cans, trays and lids. These resins provide consumers with a solution for all food-contact disposable tableware and plastic packaging that can be collected in a bin for organic recycling rather than sent to a landfill or incinerated. Once disposed of in a composting facility, the plastics decompose in the compost due to the action of microorganisms.
Compostable resin mulch is a better alternative to traditional mulch. It is more efficient in environmental and agronomic terms while maintaining its mechanical properties and use characteristics. It is used for the same purposes as conventional mulch, with the added advantage of its compostable properties (an attractive feature), making our compostable resin the best alternative for such applications. It eliminates all plastic waste and the need to dispose of it. Certified biodegradable, it is converted to organic matter under natural conditions and used as an agent and nutrient for future crops.

In general, starch-based biodegradable & Compostable resin are more cost competitive than alternative bioplastics. They can accommodate a wide range of physical properties that alternative bioplastics lack, such as tensile strength and heat tolerance.
CaCo3 based biodegradable & compostable resin is kind of PBAT modified blown plastic with high filling and industrial composting degradation, which has non-non degradable organic components.
CaCo3 based biodegradable & compostable resin is one of the most abundant biopolymers. It is completely biodegradable, inexpensive, renewable and can be easily chemically modified.
PBAT was developed to solve environmental pollution caused by conventional plastics, it is and extremely biodegradable material even degrade faster than PLA.
PBAT is often used in bags to add flexibility, fast biodegradability, and works to speed up the rate of compostability to comply with compost regulations. It is a necessary ingredient in the product. Additionally, it is quite safe for the environment because it does not leave behind any harmful toxic residue.
