ITC Paperboards and Specialty Papers Division - First Time in India – Biodegradable paper and paperboard laminates

First Time in India – Biodegradable paper and paperboard laminates

Aug 08 2011

ITC PSPD, the Paperboard and Specialty Papers division of ITC has developed a new series of paper and paperboard laminates with applications in Flexible Packaging, Folding Cartons and Disposables.

The new series of products has been launched as 'Omegawrap' for flexible packaging, 'Omegabarr' for folding Cartons and 'Omegabev' for disposables.

These products have been treated with a proprietary coating developed in partnership with Harita NTI and their principals Northern Technologies INC USA. The products have now been certified now by CIPET (Central Institute of Plastics Engineering & Technology). Certificate attached.

The omega series is available in terms of base paper between 54 and 210 gsm.

The products conform to ASTM D6868 standards for Biodegradability and ASTM 6400 standard for Compostability.

Biodegradable plastics are plastics that will decompose into natural compounds in natural aerobic (composting) and anaerobic (landfill) environments.  Biodegradability is the capability of the compostable material to be converted into CO2 under the action of micro organisms. Biodegradability leads to complete assimilation of the fragmented product as a food source by the soil microorganisms in a disposal infrastructure like composting.

Business customers in the Indian market now have a genuine option in packaging their products with a paper + biopolymer substrate meeting the standards of biodegradability.
