The fully compostable D-Grade® brand now consists of two product lines: D-Grade BIO, made from plant-based biopolymers, and D-Grade FIBRE, made from recycled paper pulp, making it both an upcycled product (from old paper) and 100% compostable.
D-Grade BIO: four-star biobased certified and 100% compostable
The D-Grade BIO product line now includes an attractive selection of thermoform pots and trays, all made from plant biopolymers. During production, significantly less energy is consumed and much less CO2 emitted than in the manufacture of comparable products made from recycled polypropylene.
D-Grade BIO is 100% biodegradable, and industrially compostable in accordance with the EN 13432 standard. D-GradeBIO is TüV OK Compost certified under number O 09-376-D and TüV OK four-star biobased certified under number B 10-054-A.
D-Grade FIBRE is a nice, logical, strong, lightweight addition to D-Grade BIO, and offers growers an excellent option for the automated cultivation of plants. D-Grade FIBRE has the natural appearance of paper pulp, and is a great alternative. The products are 100% biodegradable and compostable.
The main component is a biodegradable wood fibre of natural origin. Most of it can be composted and certified according to BS EN ISO 9001 registration FM 553146. D-Grade FIBRE can be recycled according to the provisions of EN 13430, and is biodegradable according to EN 1343.
RECOVER is the very latest product line from Desch; an addition to the standard recycled products in the Desch range as a result of demands from the market. Desch purchases post-consumer plastic waste exclusively to produce RECOVER. RECOVER products have their own distinctive colour, which makes them easy to separate from the waste stream after use and during waste processing. We can then recycle them again.
