2021 BioCycle / BPI Virtual Workshop Report

The 2021 BioCycle / BPI Virtual Workshop sessions were a multi-stakeholder series of conversations with Composters & Haulers, Municipalities, Foodservice Operators & Brands, and Compostable Product & Material Manufacturers. The stated goals were:

  1. Identify and confirm the top barriers to the acceptance and successful processing of certified compostable products. 

  2. Build consensus for a single set of acceptability criteria so that compostable products can be accepted and successfully processed by a broader set of composters processing food scraps.

While the work described in the Roadmap and Action Plan represents the full range of the conversations had during the workshop sessions, it is by no means an exhaustive list of what will be required to get us to the ultimate goal of increased organics diversion by way of a single set of acceptability criteria for compostable products. It is, however, a complete expression of the challenges and opportunities in front of us today. BPI looks forward to collaborating with you and your organization as we continue this important work.

BPI is a science-driven organization that supports a shift to the circular economy by promoting the production, use, and appropriate end of lives for materials and products that are designed to fully biodegrade in specific biologically active environments.
