Environmental gain
BioFoam has a very low CO2 footprint compared to other materials and is even better than the already very good insulant EPS.

BioFoam at 35 g/l does not disintegrate after 26 weeks of composting at room temperature at 30°C . BioFoam is therefore not home compostable as proven by tests carried out by Organic waste Systems (OWS) Gent, finished March 2010 . Test was terminated according to the norm without visible alteration.
BioFoam disintegrates only during Industrial composting at 70°C under the influence of moisture, bacteria and constant agitation according to EN13432.
