AWB and BASF start pilot project with compostable bags for biodegradable waste

March 25/2011

(BASF) -- BASFs biodegradable plastic Ecovio FS Film is being used in a pilot project by the waste management service AWB, in the district of Bad Durkheim, Germany. Starting on April 6, 2011, a three-month test will be conducted to determine whether the bags are suitable for collecting organic waste and how these bags behave on a large scale at an organic composting plant in Grunstadt owned by the waste management company GML Abfallwirtschaftsgesellschaft mbH.

At the beginning of the project, each of the approximately 65.000 households in the district of Bad Durkheim will receive 10 bags free of charge by mail along with information material. Additional bags will be available at a number of distribution points throughout the district. Residents are encouraged to use the bags to collect food waste and then dispose of them via the organic waste bin. Garbage bags made of Ecovio make the collection and disposal of biodegradable waste cleaner, more hygienic and easier: They not only prevent unpleasant odors and keep out insects, but also mean that it is no longer necessary to wash and clean the waste pail in the kitchen.
