Compost & Biogas Association promotes certified organic recycling bags

While bags made of so-called bio-plastic are criticized from various sides, the Kompost & Biogas Association is now promoting its version. Bio-plastics are not always the most environmentally friendly alternative because they are usually very resource-intensive to manufacture, explains, for example WWF.

The Compost & Biogas Association Austria has developed its own, certified “organic cycle bag”. “The light bio-cycle bags are 100% degradable (proof of certification in accordance with the EN 13432 standard) and can therefore be used for clean organic waste collection. In addition, food stored in this bag stays fresh much longer, which in turn helps to reduce food waste. The multiple use of the sack is essential for ecological sensibility: first shop and transport it home, keep it fresh there (fruit, vegetables, bread, etc.) and then collect organic waste and dispose of it cleanly ”, says the website. 

Although the promotional video explains well why compost is a valuable commodity, the question unfortunately remains open which raw materials are used to make the sacks and where they come from.

  1. I got the following reaction from the Austrian Compost & Biogas Association:
    “As a subscriber to the“ Option News ”, I noticed your article about our organic cycle bag over the weekend. In this very short article you write that bioplastics are criticized from different sides, but the introductory information is missing for the reader what you understand by bioplastics. Perhaps you want to distinguish between biodegradable plastic and bio-based non-biodegradable plastic in the article? With regard to the raw material source, the information that fossil-based raw material sources can also be used for biodegradable plastics would certainly be valuable for the reader in this context. Because this differentiated approach is essential for assessing the ecological sensibility.

    The NAWARO component of the association's organic cycle sack consists of starch which is obtained from potato waste. Perhaps you would like to add this information in the article?

    In any case, you have provided me with valuable input on this point, and we will also add this information to our video. The explanation of the correct use of the bio-cycle sack in your article is very welcome, thank you for helping us to spread the concept. "
