The Biodegradable Products Institute

BPI was formed as a nonprofit in 1999 with the mission to promote the production, use and appropriate end of lives for materials and products that are designed to fully biodegrade in specific biologically active environments, such as industrial composting.

  • A certification based on scientific standards was needed to help to identify products that were truly compostable, with verifiable claims
  • The certification scheme was based on ASTM test methods and specifications,  similar to European specifications being used
  • The certification was launched in conjunction with the USCC, referencing its “Compost Facility Operating Guide” from 1994/1997 and had the USCC name on the logo
