ProAmpac (Cincinnati, OH) has announced the certification of its ProActive Compostable CPM-2000, a high-barrier paper-based laminate for dry foods. Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certified that CPM-2000 complies with the specifications established by the American Society of Testing and Materials Standards ASTM D6868 for Industrial Compostability.
ProActive Compostable CPM-2000 has been successfully validated and commercialized for tea envelopes and overwrap but is suitable for a range of dry food products. ProAmpac’s novel high-barrier paper-based solution provides a compostable alternative to traditional non-sustainable structures. Additionally, CPM-2000 has an exceptional print quality that reinforces branding without sacrificing compostability.
