ALFAPURA® adhesives safe for biological cycles
Now that we learned about the differences between the biological and the technical circuit, it becomes obvious that ALFAPURA® adhesives are designed to be safe for the biological cycle. Common belief would therefore suggest that these products are also compostable, but as Albin Kälin explained does compostable not automatically imply that a product is eco-friendly and safe?
To be considered for a C2C Certified Material Health Certificate(™️) Certificate, a product has to be cyclable which means there is no waste. Moreover, all ingredients must be scientifically evaluated by accredited auditors according to the globally acknowledged methododology Material Health Assessment ABC-X. Besides material health and circularity, renewable energy, CO2 management, water, and social fairness are assessed and evaluated.
In practice, this means that the ALFAPURA® adhesives do not have to be disposed of as toxic waste, but rather can be reused and kept in cycles. This explainsthe fact that any used chemicals are safe and must not be cancerogenic, mutagenic, or harmful to reprotoxic. On top of that, all ingredients are eco-friendly and safe for the biological environment.
The adhesives are used in various fields of application such as hygiene products, packaging, textile, printing, and wood industries. Different products of ALFAPURA® have been developed for different applications.
