A clear explanation of the right way to manage separate collection. CONAI and Biorepack presented a communication campaign to help people identify bioplastic packaging for correct disposal together with food waste
Confusion and uncertainty can lead to unintentional mistakes in the separate collection of materials. For this reason CONAI and Biorepack have chosen to create a specific communication campaign to help people recognise bioplastic packaging that can be composted together with the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW), explaining how to use it and separate it correctly. Through a series of videos, inviting people to go ‘beyond appearances’, the two organisations want to raise awareness about the proper separate collection of organic waste, and in particular about biodegradable and compostable bioplastic packaging. In the two films the key message is clear: don’t be fooled by appearances, like when you mistakenly dispose of bioplastics together with conventional plastics. By carefully reading the labels and symbols on packaging you can separate waste properly and dispose of compostable bioplastic packaging together with food waste.
Go beyond appearances. Don’t dispose of compostable plastic with conventional plastics

A changing of the guard is taking place in the management of Biorepack – the national consortium for the organic recycling of biodegradable and compostable plastic packaging, the seventh consortium in the CONAI system, as the Board of Directors has appointed Carmine Pagnozzi as the new general director.
Recycling explained by those who directly operate some of Italy's composting plants. Watch the videos.
The fight against illegality in the compostable bioplastic packaging sector intensifies with the introduction of an online platform created by Biorepack in collaboration with Assobioplastiche.
Two years ahead of the deadline set by the European Union. The regulation requires Italian municipalities to set up a separate collection service for food waste, including EN 13432-certified biodegradable and compostable packaging.
Italy serves as an example and has already done ‘a lot of work’ in using compostable packaging, particularly for food-related applications.
An estimated 37% of fruit and vegetables are sold packaged. In Paris, from 1 January, 30 types of fresh fruit and vegetables must be sold without plastic packaging.
