Organisation: KIDV

Biodegradable plastics are emerging. The Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging (KIDV) prefers however reusable and recyclable packaging above biodegradable packaging.

Therefore, KIDV has prepared a factsheet with a clear acting perspective for companies that bring packed products on the market.

The information in this factsheet on biodegradable packaging is in line with the research results of CE Delft, the Dutch Transition Agenda Plastics and with the policy line about biodegradable plastics in the Dutch National Waste Management Plan.
