All about the plastic bag ban A ban on plastic carrier bags, except those fully biodegradable, will come into effect in Austria in 2020. Very light, biodegradable bags are excepted. Our solution can be found here: NaKu carrier bag light. Explanations From 1 January 2020, the placing on the market of plastic carrier bags
We work together with a daycare centre in St. Pölten NaKu & The “Daycare Centre for disabled people in St. Pölten” Since NaKu id offering its bag rolls as a roll of 10, we are enthusiastic fans of our partner, the day care centre for the disabled people in St.
All about the NaKu NaNa bag Our innovative NaNa bag is the first bag that decomposes AND creates a new plant. This bag is based on renewable raw materials and is 100% recyclable and compostable. Due to its natural origin, the NaNa bag is free from harmful substances and is
Learn more about the NaKu Double Loop The special thing about our cycle is that we unite what is otherwise separate from each other: recycling and renewable. The NaKu Double Loop is a combination of a technical and a natural cycle. Unlike the Cradle to Cradle principle, where both loops
Learn more about the recycling process The vision of NaKu is to combine bio and recycling. Natural polymers should primarily be recycled. The two supreme disciplines of sustainability are a combination of regrowth and recycling. Therefore, we would prefer to see our NaKu products ending up in the recycling bin.
Learn more about our raw materials Biopolymers can be produced from many different raw materials. All starch-containing plant products can be used as resources for natural polymers, including corn, potatoes, sunflowers, grain or sugar. NaKu uses a corn-based starch compound to produce their breathable fresh-storage bags. This corn originates from
Learn more about the basis of a natural polymer The basis of a natural polymer is a renewable raw material that is refined into a compound. The compound is a fine, grainy substance that can be further processed. Depending on its intended use, either corn starch or lactic acid will
The term “biopolymers” is broad and abstract. There is no uniform or legal definition. All products that are either made from renewable raw material or are biodegradable can be considered biopolymers. That means that even PVC with only a 20 percent renewable share can be called a biopolymer. There are
Learn more about the advantages of natural polymer Why should I buy NaKu products? Natural polymers produced by NaKu have numerous advantages over traditional material. NaKu is non-toxicTraditional polymers can emit pollutants like plasticisers (bisphenol A) to their surroundings. In contrast, all components of natural polymers are readily degradable in
Learn about the production process of natural polymers. To process natural polymer into a desired form, there are different methods that are ideal for each area of application. Each procedure starts with the fusing of the compound in a machine that works similarly to a meat grinder, but hot. NaKu
Learn more about the biodegradability There are several options to make use of NaKu products at the end of their life cycle. Natural polymer is biodegradable. This means that it is compostable in accordance to european standard EN 13432 and therefore fulfills the requirement to degrade to biogenic material within
Make natural plastic yourself at home First, mix 1/4 liter of whole milk with two tablespoons of vinegar in a pot and heat it. Make sure that the mixture does not cook! Stir constantly during heating. The milk flocks out and first lumps of natural plastic are being formed. Use
