Sunflower seed shells are a waste product of the sunflower oil production and therefore, they are 100% biodegradable. Innovative and home compostable products can be made from this material.

What is special about this material?

The raw-material is a type of bio-PBS based on cornstarch and combined with sunflower seed shells – a waste product from the food industry. In our bio-plastic processing we give these shells a second life.

Home compostability has been certified by TÜV Austria.
