A standard conventional (PE) plastic that replaces 10-30% of its petroleum base when combined with our bio-based, fully bio-renewable material that is neither composed of heavy metals, crop residues, vegetable starches, oil based fertilizers or pesticides in its production. The result is an ‘intelligent plastic’ with a reduced overall carbon footprint, one that is manufactured using sustainable/recycled materials and a product that will decompose/disintegrate when disposed of within landfills, an outdoor litter environment or in an aerated (bacteria laden) high heat compost facility.
Complete digestion by microbial activity ensues to produce only biomass, H20 & C02.
The plus? These plastics do not require oxygen to assume breakdown and will withstand heavy commercial use.
