2011 BRING US A VERY BIG NEWS:
THE LAW OF BIODEGRADABLE AND COMPOSTABLE BAG, HAS PASSED!!THIS IS AN EPOCH-MAKING CHANGE THAT HAS PASSED ALL AROUND EUROPE AND ITALY, NOW, IS AN EXAMPLE FOR EVERYONE.
Here there are clarification about the ban of plastic bags commercialization in force by the first January, 2011:
In connection with the numerous questions we have reached, we clarify that the ban of commercialization of plastic-bag without the exactly requirement of biodegradability indicated by the European tequnical standard. Section 1, clause 1130 of the law of 26 of December 2006, n,. 296, modified by section 23, clause 21-novies Legislative Decree 1st July 2009, n.78, modified by the law of 3 August 2009, n. 102 will enter in to force 1stJanuary 2011.

Ministry of Environment, Land and Sea and Ministry of Economic Development, in collaboration with the expert authorities, will monitoring the rigorous respect of the Law.
Another news that pharmacists have not to underestimate is: not buy the “biodegradable ECM” products.
Antitrust Authority has decided that biodegradability advertisement of ECM product is misleading and so it can’t be bought and neither used for the differentiated wet waste disposal as it is barely biodegradable.
Then, the choice is almost imposed to the Pharmacist. The bought of the Pharmabag biodegradable and compostable carrier bags, is the right choice. Master-bi from Novamont, is the product we wanted for our clients to guarantee respect and quality for the environment.
