Vinçotte Awards DaniMer Scientific’s 12991 Film Resins with OK Compost Home Certificate
DaniMer Scientific’s 12991 film resins have been officially certified as compostable at home by Vinçotte International, a renowned inspection facility headquartered in Vilvoorde, Belgium. The OK biodegradable home compost label guarantees that the product will completely decay even in the cooler temperatures of a garden compost heap.
“Receiving the Vinçotte OK Compost Home Certification for our 12991 film resins provides a tremendous opportunity for DaniMer to raise awareness of the availability of certain film products used daily in the home,” says Scott Tuten, Senior Vice President of DaniMer Scientific. “There are many benefits of home composting including saving money and lessening the burden on landfills. DaniMer is fortunate to have developed a product that offers multiple end of life options. The 12991 film can be composted in home compost systems providing environmentally safe materials that can be deposited back into the earth.”
DaniMer’s film resins are specifically designed for the efficient conversion and production of: disposable shopping bags, compostable bags, odor barrier packaging products and agricultural mulch film, among others.
