EarthFirst Films by Sidaplax, a global bioplastic film technology and manufacturing company, announces the successful completion of the first commercial run of PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate) home-compostable packaging film.

Although the PHA materials have been certified, the film will go through biodegradation and home compostability screening prior to full certification. Made from Danimer Scientific’s NODAX PHA, the new film is designed for a wide range of applications across food, beverage, grocery retail, quick service restaurant, stadium foodservice, and many other consumer packaged goods and industrial segments.

“This is the first in a lineup of new advanced solutions in home compostable films we’ll launch in the next 12-18 months,”​ said George Thomas, CEO of EarthFirst Films by Sidaplax.

“We are extremely excited to add PHA to our EarthFirst biopolymer films portfolio. We appreciate the support we received from Danimer in making this a success.”

“Home compostable films are a catalyst for greater expansion of end-of-life options for flexible packaging,”​ said Chris Schaefer, global marketing director.

“We’re committed to helping brands lower their packaging carbon footprint in response to consumer requests.”
