German chemical major BASF is embarking on a sustainability initiative that involves the introduction of the Ecovio and Ecoflex lines of biodegradable plastics. "Our goal must be that we achieve the same performance with biodegradable plastics as with regular plastics," said Tobias Haber, head of BASF's specialty plastics for the Asia Pacific region. "We only want to use renewable products when they improve sustainability. We want to focus on areas where biodegradability adds value," he added.
