Bioffex® Wins US Plastics Pact Award for Compostable Innovation

Lifoam’s Bioffex® Wins 2024 US Plastics Pact Award Lifoam Industries, LLC (Lifoam), a subsidiary of LifeMade Products LLC, is pleased to announce its receipt of the 2024 US Plastics Pact Sustainable Packaging Innovation Award in the Compostability category. This accolade underscores Lifoam’s dedication to advancing packaging solutions and environmental stewardship.

At the GreenBiz Circularity Conference 2024 in Chicago, IL, Lifoam’s revolutionary Bioffex® technology secured the top position in the Compostability category. Unlike traditional foams, Bioffex® employs a PLA-based bead foam, eliminating reliance on petroleum-based feedstocks commonly associated with EPS (expanded polystyrene).

Key Points:

  • 100% Bio-based Composition: Bioffex® technology is certified through ASTM D6866-20 Method B and accepted by the USDA’s BioPreferred® program, marking it as a fully bio-based alternative.
  • Environmental Benefits: Molding with Bioffex® technology is less water and greenhouse gas-intensive compared to EPS. Moreover, products made with Bioffex® technology compost in under four weeks (ASTM D6400-19), outperforming EPS in landfill scenarios. Quote from Brian Searfoss, President and CEO of LifeMade Products LLC:

“We’re thrilled to receive the prestigious 2024 US Plastics Pact Sustainable Packaging Innovation Award. This recognition validates our commitment to environmental impact through Bioffex® innovation. We’re grateful to the USPP and more determined than ever to continue our sustainable journey.”

Continued Commitment:

In accepting this award, Lifoam reaffirms its dedication to pioneering sustainable packaging solutions. Quote from Mario D’Ovidio, CEO of Jadex:

Jadex and its operating companies are committed to sustainability. We’re constantly innovating to reduce plastic pollution and Bioffex® technology exemplifies this commitment. We’re proud to receive this award.
