Biopolymer composting

Complex services in determining the compostability of biopolymers and biopolymer-based waste utilization

ProfiKomp® works to play a key role in establishing the circular economy, specifically in the field of compostable bioplastic waste utilization. We provide analytical services, consulting, engineering and specialized technologies for biopolymer composting.

ProfiKomp® Inc. provides comprehensive services from examining biopolymer raw materials & waste products, simulating the composting process and designing custom composting technologies.


Biopolymer feedstock examination

Our analytical and research capability at the ProfiKomp® Innovation and Education Centre allow us to provide professional services in the field of biopolymer biodegradability by analyzing raw materials and treated materials.

Our feedstock analysis and research services use standardized and proprietary analytical methods that meet the criteria defined in industry norms for modelling industrial and home composting environments.

  • Examination of physical, chemical and biological parameters of biopolymer wastes and by-products;
  • Determining the biodegradability and compostability of product samples meeting the criteria of accepted standards (EN, ISO, ASTM);
  • Determining the biodegradability and compostability of in-process samples from industrial composters and bioreactors (based on our own methodology) by simulating and studying all the stages of industrial or home composting.


Composting process examination

Based on the professional experience and technical background of the ProfiKomp® Group we are able to simulate composting with full process tracking during the process to optimize and develop custom technologies.


Feedstock composition optimization

  • C/N ratio optimization;
  • nutrient content adjustment;
  • determination of additives


Designing optimized composting processes

  • moisture level optimization;
  • establishing oxidative conditions;
  • determining adequate aeration requirements;
  • control system optimization;
  • gas emission measurement.


Biopolymer derived compost examination

Determining product quality parameters and the usability of compost products such as composts, soil amendments and soil conditioning materials based on standardized and proprietary methodology.

Determining the effect of fertilizing product additions on germination with the help of standardized phytotoxicity tests in a phytotron. Weed seed germination tests can be also carried out in the phytotron laboratory.

  • examination of physical and chemical parameters of the product;
  • biological examination: maturity tests, determination of respiration activity (AT4 value);
  • plant growth tests in phytotron chambers, phytotoxicity tests and examination of germination inhibition effects.
