Highest Standards for Performance & Complete Soil Biodegradation
Organix A.G. Film Participating in Multi-Year University Study
At Organix Solutions, we care deeply about the end-of-life destination of all our compostable and biodegradable products. In our pursuit to provide our customers with sustainable materials, we are pleased to contribute to a five year, multi-disciplinary study led by research teams at The University of Tennessee, Washington State University and Montana State University.
The project - Performance and Adoptability of Biodegradable Plastic Mulch for Sustainable Specialty Crop Production is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute for Food and Agriculture, through its Specialty Crop Research Initiative.
We invite you to visit the research website www.biodegradablemulch.org where you will find information on the project and the latest updates.
CERTIFIED by TUV OK Soil Biodegradability Standards
Currently there is no U.S. standard for a mulch film's ability to completely soil biodegrade. Europe recognizes the TUV OK Soil Biodegradability certification as the gold standard for complete soil biodegradation within a specific timeframe, as well as insurance of no eco-toxicity brought into the soil. To avoid incomplete biodegradation (remaining pieces of film) or unwanted metals and other toxic substances entering your soil, it is strongly recommended to look for this certification when purchasing a biodegradable mulch film.
NOTE: Organix A.G. Film is the only TUV-certified film in the United States.
