BASF increases prices for ecovio® in Europe on Feb 16, 2021

BASF increases prices for ecovio® in Europe on Feb 16, 20212021.02.19

On Feb 16, 2021, BASF announced the price increase of its certified biodegradable compound ecovio® in Europe.

 

With immediate effect or as contracts permit, BASF is increasing the prices for its certified biodegradable compound ecovio® in Europe. Affected grades are:


ecovio® F: + 350 €/ton (MT)

ecovio® M: + 350 €/ton (MT)

ecovio® T: + 350 €/ton (MT)

 

ecovio® is a certified compostable and soil-biodegradable bioplastic. Its main application areas are bags for organic waste or fruit and vegetables, cling films and agricultural mulch films. Compostable packaging solutions such as paper coating, shrink films as well as thermoformed and injection-molded applications can also be manufactured with ecovio®.


Ecovio is a certified compostable and soil-biodegradable bioplastic blend consisting of BASF’s compostable ecoflex material - a co-polyester polybutylene adipate terephthalate - PLA and other additives. Compared to simple starch based bioplastics, partially-based ecovio is more resistant to mechanical stress and moisture.


It is a finished product that can be used as a drop-in solution in standard plastic production procedures with no additional blending required.Its main application areas are bags for organic waste or fruit and vegetables, cling films and agricultural mulch films. Ecovio is also suitable for compostable packaging solutions such as paper coating, shrink films as well as thermoformed and injection-molded applications.
