Novamont is a Benfefit Company, B Corp certified, world’s leader in the production of biodegradable and compostable bioplastics and biochemicals. In strong collaboration with farmers, composters, retail, brand owners, municipalities, over the last 30 years, Novamont has been working on the development of a circular bioeconomy model where compostable bioplastics have not only proven to be fundamental for organic waste collection, allowing Italy to become first in Europe for the recycling of food waste (47% vs 16% of the European average), but also to be the solution for all those packaging that today cannot be recycled due to their size and multi-material composition and to reduce pollution in agriculture.
