Biodegradable NOVUS Select air cushion options give you unparalleled versatility to protect the products you ship. Biodegradable NOVUS Select air cushion material is ISO 9001 certified, which meets the ever-growing customer demand for the highest level of quality in packing material. Biodegradable NOVUS Select air cushions are made from 100% recyclable material and can be recycled and reused. If not recycled, Biodegradable NOVUS Select air cushions will biodegrade within 9 to 60 months in the presence of microorganisms, whether they are sent to a landfill or end up as litter in the soil.

This material is designed with FP International’s patented, innovative air transfer technology that allows air movement (transfer) within cushions during shipment. This movement acts as a shock absorber to provide continuous protection. Air bags without air transfer technology can transmit shock and damage products during shipment.

The tenets of reduce, reuse and recycle have been a part of our company's philosophy since it was established in 1967. A lifecycle analysis of our products is part of our primary concern and why we emphasize design and innovative technologies. In the event our air cushions are not reused or recycled, they will biodegrade.

This FP biodegradable additive does not affect the performance or the shelf life of our product, because biodegradation only occurs in the presence of microorganisms which are present in landfills, home and commercial composting, and other areas where they exist in nature. The products will biodegrade in aerobic (with air) and anaerobic (without air) conditions.
