The next generation of food packaging is here! Genpak has partnered with Danimer Scientific to produce GenZero™ eco-friendly food service products, the first food packaging solution using Nodax PHA. This food packaging is biodegradable, leaving a smaller environmental impact when composted. Check out the benefits of eco-friendly food service packaging and how it is created.


What is PHA Food Service Packaging?

PHA production starts with Canola seeds which are pressed for their oil. The oil is then fed to soil bacteria in a controlled fermentation process in which PHA is extracted using a solvent-free separation process and is then pelletized for conversion into food service products such as containers, plates and bowls.

Once the packaging is ready to be discarded, they can be composted and will biodegrade naturally leaving no toxic residue.
