Optimising the collection and utilization of biowaste

The Verbund kompostierbare Produkte e.V.  (Association for Compostable Products) is a registered association founded in Berlin in September 2013.
Its main objective is to promote the separate collection of organic waste in Germany. Every year, almost 5 million tons of organic waste are still disposed in the residual waste bin and treated by incineration.  Since January 1st 2015, the separate collection of organic waste is mandatory in Germany (German Law on Circular Economy 2012). However, in about one third of local authorities implementation is still lagging behind.
The collection of organic waste becomes cleaner, more hygienic, and more convenient when using organic waste collection bags made from certified compostable plastics or laminated paper. These bags help to increase the acceptance of the separate organic waste collection and the volumes collected. Consequently, the use of compostable bags can help increase biogas and compost yields from organic waste treated in anaerobic digestion and industrial composting plants.
A standardized design helps with the identification of compostable organic waste collection bags, not only by consumers but also when treated in composting or anaerobic digestion plants. Therefore, the Verbund kompostierbare Produkte e.V. has published recommendations for a standardized design of organic waste bags in Germany. The main feature is the “Seedling” logo (® European Bioplastics e.V.), which is printed across the bag forming a grid pattern.
