Greeny is a line of Gelato (Ice Cream) thermal
containers made of BIOFOAM® 100% bio
foamed PLA, polylactic acid.

It can be considered as the biodegradable and
compostable alternative to classic polystyrene.

What is PLA?
PLA, or polylactic acid,
is a biodegradable polymer from
renewable sources.
This material is obtained by
the polymerisation of lactic acid,
derived from dextrose (sugar).

Dextrose for Greeny is currently
produced using sugar cane.
However, it could also come from
beetroot, wheat and other sugar-rich plants.

Did you know?
Greeny PLA is not expanded
with pentane but with CO2.
In terms of the environment
and the reduction of greenhouse
gases, it is thus a sustainable
alternative to petroleum-derived polymers.

PLA has passed stringent stability tests,
is compostable, does not degrade
at ambient temperature
and it possesses excellent physical
and mechanical properties.
graphic
How PLA is
produced?
A fragmentation process is used
to turn dextrose into lactic acid and
subsequently into versatile polymers,
suitable for producing resins similar to
oil based plastic or fibres.

Foamed PLA is already used for
refrigerated transport and
protective containers, as well as
for sustainable insulating material in
the construction industry.

Is PLA Eco-friendly?

PLA is derived from annually renewable sources.
After use, PLA products are completely compostable.
(DIN CERTCO certification)

Why is
sugar cane used?
Natural sugar is essential in PLA
production and sugar cane is a very
efficient resource for PLA production.
About 2.5 kg of sugar cane produces 1 kg of PLA.

Is Greeny compatible
with food?
All Greeny line products are
suitable for food contact (dry, liquid
and fatty foods) with a shelf life of
30 days at ambient temperature, in compliance with
the European certification.

What is the difference between biodegradable and copostable?
Biodegradable materials can be decomposed into very small parts, due to biological activity and chemical alteration of the material structure. By contrast, materials that totally decompose when exposed to certain conditions, leaving no visible or toxic residuals, are defined as compostable.
An oak twig, for example, is not compostable, because it decomposes too slowly. In other words, composting is the entire biodegradation process.
The time it takes for a material to biodegrade is closely linked to factors like temperature, humidity, oxygenation and concentration of microorganisms encountered by the substance during the process. The ability to artificially control such parameters, for example by constantly monitoring them, enables us to improve the biodegradation performance in terms of decomposition speed.
This is the compostability process, so the possibility to increase the speed of biodegradation under controlled conditions.

How long does it
take for a PLA container
to completely decompose?
It takes 6-8 weeks in industrial composting structures.
In optimal composting conditions, PLA products decompose in 8-12 weeks. BioFoam® is certified as industrially compostable according to EN13432 and has Cradle-2-CradleSM Silver certification

Which are the
characteristics of PLA?


PLA, and thus Greeny, matches the performance of EPS (expanded polystyrene), both at thermal and mechanical level. With regard to thermal resistance, as for EPS and assuming an external temperature of 25 °C, the temperature of food stored in a PLA container will vary by -2 °C per hour.
