Andolfi to Launch Mirel’s Compostable Bag Product Line

Andolfi, an Italian company specialising in the development of flexible films, bags and packaging will launch the Mvera B5002, line of compostable bags created by Mirel. This announcement was made by Telles, which is a joint venture between Archer Daniels Midland Company and Metabolix.

Andolfi is also under collaboration with Telles to launch a new line of compostable bags to be used in supermarkets and other retail shops. The Mvera has been certified for Vincotte in order to be compliant with EN 13432 for compostable plastics. It has high seam welding capacity and strength. It is resistant to tear with quicker compostability.

Recent regulations by Europe to ban plastic bags that can be used once, has caused the demand for reusable bags to increase. It is estimated that more than 20 million plastic bags are used in Italy alone with one person using an average of 400 plastic bags. According to Alessandro Andolfi who is the President and CEO of Andolfi, the Mvera B5002 will help the company to meet the rising demand for reusable or compostable bags. These compostable bags are also highly compatible to printing, which is very useful for customers who want to build their brands. Mirel is a group of bioplastic materials that possess physical properties similar to resins that are based on petroleum and are biodegradable.
