At the ABA


The ABA is dedicated to promoting plastics that are biodegradable, compostable and based on renewable resources.

The association supports and promotes:

  • The growth and use of renewable raw materials in products and applications
  • Innovation leading to lower environmental impact of durable and non-durable plastic products
  • Independent third party verification and product labelling based on the AS4736 standard and AS 5810-2010 standard, if biodegradability and compostability are claimed
  • Independent third party verification and product labelling for bio-based polymer products
  • The identification and evaluation of other eco-efficient end-of-life options
