BioFlex Biodegradable Solution

Energy from packaging waste

Bioflex® films and bags are Layfield's responsible end-of-life packaging solution. This product was designed to have the package safely return to the environment where it typically ends its life within the traditional waste streams. The energy from your package will be harnessed and converted into clean, renewable, sustainable energy within today's modern landfill environments.

Did you know?

Most landfills are equipped to capture the Land Fill Gas (LFG) produced by the BioFlex® package and converted into renewable and sustainable energy. In the U.S. there are currently 654 modern landfills projects (, and in Canada, there are 64 projects ( Today, over 80% of plastics, once disposed of end up at facilities designed for waste to energy conversion. BioFlex® is the perfect solution for utilizing today's readily available energy conversion infrastructures in almost all the metropolitan cities in North America. The convenient and effortless disposal method makes BioFlex® one of the most responsible and sustainable choice for packaging any products in plastic.

How does Bioflex® work?

Bioflex® maintains package integrity and will not change the barriers or physical properties of the package. Food manufacturers and processors do not require any special equipment or need to make any adjustments to the packaging process. Unlike other biodegradable products, Bioflex® will not break down from oxygen or UV rays. Because this product does not require any special handling, consumers do not have to change their behavior or adjust the way they discard packaging.
