BioViron's range of 100% biodegradable and compostable materials for a variety of industries. Start your journey to better business today.
Environmentally friendly solution to traditional packaging foam.
Used in shipping, packing and crates to protect products and items in transit and storage.
BioViron CompostaFoam is biodegradable (ASTM D6400) compostable and water-soluble starch based foam is manufactured from Cornstarch and Soy Oil. It has been accepted for use within the supply chain as an environmentally friendly space filling material for transit packaging applications.
68% less energy requirements and 76% less greenhouse gas emissions than comparable amounts of polyethylene foam.
BioViron foams provide effective product protection and offers an environmentally safe, zero waste alternative to current synthetic foam products.
BioViron material is safe, non-toxic, water-soluble, fully biodegradable polymer material and meets all US and international standards of biodegradability including specifications for compostable plastics as per ASTM D6400 (USA), DIN54900 (Germany) and EN13432 (Europe).
BioViron CompostaFoam has shown to be biodegradable in various environments as per ASTM D5988 (soil), ASTM D5338/ISO14855 (composting) and ASTM D6691 (aqueous and marine). If discarded in any of these environments, the foam would become readily available as a nutrient/food source for the micro-organisms and enter the microbial food chain.
These unique properties provide unique opportunities in discarding BioViron CompostaFoam in an ecologically responsible and environmentally acceptable manner.
Material Life cycle
Our foam provides unmatched convenience when it’s time for disposal. Meets Standards for Biodegradability in Ground and Water-based Environments set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Facilitates ISO 14000 Certification by demonstrating a commitment to continual environmental improvement.
• Compost it! The foam biodegrades in 7-10 days.
• Drown it! The foam biodegrades in freshwater and saltwater.
• Dissolve it! The foam easily dissolves- safe for pipes and septic systems.
• Burn it! The foam burns cleanly and safely –
no harmful fumes.
• Recycle it! The foam can be recycled with corrugated and paper materials.
Sizes subject to order quantities.

100% Compostable Film
The perfect solution for your Compostable mulch film application
All resins within the Composta© are completely biodegradable according to international standards and a either entirely or partially based on renewable raw materials
For the production of biodegradable mulch films, BioViron generally recommends CompostaFilm BVF102 which is certified compostable.
Biodegradable mulch film made from CompostaFilm BVF102 can be laid out on the field in the same way as conventional polyethylene films using the same equipment. thus, it is perfect drop-in replacement for fossil based PE.
• Stable during use, good disintegration in soil after ploughing under
• Cost efficiency no recollection required to dispense of the film
• Superior water resistance
• High strength and tear resistance
• High weed suppression
• Replacement of herbicides
• Water saving, control of irrigation
• Acceleration of budding due to increased soil temperature
• Wide range of applications for various crop and climate conditions
A 100% compostable, biodegradable and non-toxic material made from plants, designed to fit your products, items or business needs.
Material Life cycle
PLA is a biobased polymer derived from natural resources and offers a significant reduction in carbon footprint compared to oil-based plastics. CompostaForm BVC100 is a high viscosity, low flow, amorphous, transparent PLA resin suitable for film extrusion, thermoforming or fibre spinning.
The product range that CompostaForm BVC100 can replace is extensive including many single use plastics. Applications include package inserts to protect items such as chocolates or glass, bottled drinks, cups, packing boxes for fruits, single use plates, egg trays, lids and much more.
STORAGE CONDITIONS: It is essential to store the material in a dry and cool place.
COMPOSTABILITY: BioViron BVN101 is made from Certified, European standard EN13432 material
FOOD CONTACT APPROVAL: BioViron BVN101 is approved for food contact according to European directives.
