Foils and films

Compostable foils and films.
This high-quality biopolymer for making foil and film is a renewable non-GMO raw material. It is biodegradable, compostable, and contributes to the reduction of microplastics on land and in the ocean. Compared to conventional plastics and paper, it has significantly lower CO²-emissions when incinerated and no toxic smoke. Whilst other existing biomaterials exhibit one or more of these qualities, none of them combines all, making this high-quality biopolymer the most versatile biomaterial available: renewable, biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, and convertible to bioenergy.

These Plant-Based resins are a very good candidate for the replacement of conventional plastics foils and films currently on the market. It can be used in existing machinery and allows more energy-efficient production due to lower temperature needs. the Plant-based foils and films, GS-companies can provide, are all made from biopolymers, such as starch, polylactic acid (PLA), or a special blend of plant-based raw materials. Most compostable films are considered compostable at an industrial level, so aren’t suitable for home composting as you might think. Whilst they’ll still break down in a home compost environment, they’d take longer than in industrial conditions. But there are also home compostable and water dissolvable foils on the market. The plant-based foil and film market is constantly developing new grades, materials, and better barrier qualities.

Compostable foils and films

compostable wrapping

With our compostable shrink wrap you can pack your plant-based product. No use of petroleum in your production and packaging department.

Green packaging resin pla

Made from polyvinyl alcohol. It is available in a wide range of types, from those that are soluble in cold water to those that are soluble in hot water, to respond to diverse needs.

pallet wrapping compostable

With a plant-based wrapping we can remove one million tonnes of plastic from the environment. We have several partners that can proved the right rolls

plant-based packaging foil

Most of the fossil based films and foils can be changed to a plant-based film. Ideal for films than can generate more food waste to the industrial composting facility

compostable bags

Made with a bio-degradable polymer combined with macro-molecule materials such as plant starch and cellulose. End of life in industrial composting conditions.

agriculture foil

The laying of the film can be performed with the same equipment used for traditional plastic films. The film will compost in home-compostable environment.
