End of life options
Besides landfill, NATIVIA® offers a range of environmentally-friendly alternatives
- Composting: NATIVIA® is compostable according to DIN EN 13432 standards: under controlled conditions (T>58°C, rh>90%, presence of micro-organism), PLA will fully degrade into CO2, water and biomass;
- Mechanical Recycling: PLA can be re-used after grinding, re-crystallisation and re-granulation;
- Chemical Recycling: Possible when material will be returned to raw material manufacturer or others;
- Incineration: PLA is 100% combustible, thus giving clean energy from waste.
