Visit from China


On October 30th representatives of large Chinese Bioplastic producers visited DIN CERTCO in Berlin. They were accompanied by the testing laboratory “China National Center for Quality and Supervision of Plastics (NTSQP)“ from Beijing.

In a workshop the newest certification rules and standards for compostable and bio-based products were presented to the participants. Special interest lay in the newest European Regulatories regarding the reduction of the consumption of plastic bags. Also European Bioplastics e.V. took part in this event and gave lectures about current market data in bioplastic sector as well as their activities in the political area.

During their stay in Germany the Chinese delegation also visited a composting facility in Kaiserslautern and production facilities of BASF in Ludwigshafen.

The testing laboratory NTSQP is a DIN CERTCO approved laboratory since 2008 for testing of compostable products and since 2014 also for bio-based products according CEN/TS 16137:2011-07.
