BPI certification is designed to ensure that products are made with correct components and that the correct tests have been conducted to ensure safety for the environment

Flexible packaging developer TricorBraun Flex has received the BPI certification mark from the Biodegradable Products Institute for its compostable, plant-based packaging product, Biotré 3.0.

The packaging is made from high barrier materials, preventing the permeation of water, oil, oxygen, gas, or light. It can be disposed of in curbside composting bins for industrial composting.

BPI certification is designed to ensure that products are made with correct components and that the correct tests have been conducted to ensure safety for the environment. According to the institute, its certification distinguishes the manufacturers and brands that make products that comply with scientific standards from those that do not.

“We’re proud to have this distinction from the Biodegradable Products Institute for our Biotré 3.0 product,” said Glenn Sacco, VP, Commercial, TricorBraun Flex. “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.”
