Biodegradable Masterbatch Additive - Description
Committed for years to researching solutions that reduce the environmental impact of plastics, the company has developed an innovative product that makes the biodegradation of polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene possible. It has identified a mixture of organic matter which makes two things possible: the product works and a stable compound suitable for combining with polyethylene, polyporpylene and polystyrene has been achieved.
Biodegradation of plastic treated with this material occurs using both aerobic and anaerobic processes: producing the following products:
- AEROBIC BIODEGRADATION: CO2 + H2O + biomass
- ANAEROBIC BIODEGRADATION: CO2 + CH4 + biomass
The important technical and mechanical properties, such as resistance, re-use and recyclability, and that both the end-user and the manufacturer happily accept the solution, as it requires no change to the manufacturer´s industrial processes or the way the product is used by the consumer.
