Taghleef Industries(Ti) has started production of the new Nativia film from its plant in San Giorgio di Nogaro, Italy. Nativia is based on NatureWorks PLA biopolymers, marketed under the brand name Ingeo, and is 100 percent made from renewable resources.

Nativia is a biodegradable and compostable film that complies with the European standard EN13432. The start-up of the new line took place on August 18 and first shipments will be made at the beginning of September.
Valerio Garzitto, CEO of Ti Europe, said: ‘We are particularly proud of the work carried out by our technicians. The BoPLA line was ordered just five months ago, and we already obtained an enthusiastic result being able to be on the market now with a film with excellent characteristics.’

Brueckner was the main supplier of the new BoPLA line. Headquartered in Dubai, Ti has six production sites across the globe.
