« Mater-bi » is a material which looks like plastic but is completely biodegradable in 6 to 12 weeks and can be turned into compost. It is made up of 60 % corn starch and 40 % synthetic products. The Italian Ferruzi is working on the introduction of this green plastic on an industrial level : plastic bags, vegetable nets, nappies, cotton buds… Since September 2007, the British company Jordan’s uses mater-bi to wrap its organic cereal.
