1Heat resistance properties depend on material grade and design & dimensions of the end product.

2Contains from 70% to 100% USDA certified biobased content, depending on the material grade.

3Materials are suitable for repeated use as per European Commission regulation (EU) No 10/2011. Dishwashability tested according to EN 12875 standard with 20 washing cycles.

4Mechanical recyclability demonstrated by independent third party. Universal and Flex materials can be recycled through hydrolysis back to monomers, suitable as feedstock for recycled biopolymers (tested and proven technically feasible by a third-party industrial company). Field tests have also verified that Sulapac materials can be collected and sorted out of a mixed waste stream. When collected together, Sulapac materials do not interfere with the current mechanical recycling of conventional fossil-based or bio-based non-biodegradable plastics. The technology for chemical recycling of bio-based and biodegradable materials exists, but the infrastructure is still under development.

5The compostability has been tested according to EN 13432 and ASTM D6400. BPI and Seedling certification status depending on the material grade.

60,09 kg CO2eq/kg for Sulapac Universal (critically reviewed cradle-to-gate LCA, including biogenic carbon, performed by an independent third-party consultancy). Carbon footprint of polypropylene is typically around 1,6-1,9 kg CO2eq/kg.

7Biodegradation of 58-74 % in 462 days in the marine environment ASTM D6691(86oF/30oC). Not considered biodegradable in California. Ecotoxicity and threshold values for heavy metals tested according to EN 13432. Food contact compliant.
