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.
The fight against illegality in the compostable bioplastic packaging sector has intensified with the introduction of an online platform created by Biorepack in collaboration with Assobioplastiche. It is a tool that individuals and businesses can use to report carrier bags, tableware and other items that have been passed off as compostable bioplastics though they do not possess the technical and environmental characteristics required by law.
Once a user submits a report on the platform, the case is handled by a team of specialist technicians. If any violations are detected, the verification bodies will carry out their own checks, which may result in the filing of a complaint with the competent authorities.
With this initiative, Biorepack is doubling down its commitment to protect the compostable bioplastics supply chain from unlawful activity. The new platform will reinforce existing collaborations with national and local law enforcement agencies, which are responsible for investigating irregularities and punishing offenders.

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.
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.
