The development of new technology that could reduce ocean plastics
After immense amounts of research, we have narrowed our search down to 3 types of biodegradable plastic. All of which leave behind no microplastics and no ecotoxicity.
Each of the biodegradable plastics are time controlled.The life of each material can be adjusted to last for a designated period of time depending on our customer’s needs.
Each film is produced without any compromise to the clarity and strength of the material. This remains the same as conventional or non biodegradable plastics. Unlike traditional PLA which can be more brittle, has a low melt point and and may not have the same finish as petroleum plastics.
We produce material that can be industrially composted, biodegrades in the open environment, Or biodegrades in landfill.
Introducing the PM plastics range
A film made with an organic additive that is designed to reduce the amount of time plastic stays in our environment, including landfill.
This material can biodegrade anaerobically in landfill, in oceans and even in a muddy swamp. The key to this material breaking down is exposure to specific types of bacteria found in all of these places listed.
This plastic when in an anaerobic environment attracts microbes in the same way organic matter does.
This material can go on to be recycled without any harm to the batch, without the help of antioxidants.
This material is designed to stop thespread of fugitive plastics reaching our oceans.
Designed with unmanaged waste systems in mind, the biggest contributor to ocean plastics. The material biodegrades completely leaving behind no microplastics whatsoever.
This plastic can go on to be recycled without any harm to the batch, no antioxidants are required, the biodegradable nature of the plastic simply becomes inactive once it’s gone through the recycling process. If its disposed of in an unmanaged waste stream it will
biodegrade completely without any harm to the environment.
This material needs air, light, heat, and moisture in order to begin degradation. Once degradation begins bacteria can eat and digest it leaving behind only biomass, Co2, water
Quickly biodegrades by microorganisms and enzymes under the conditions of an industrial composting plant. It biodegrades in a matter of weeks into water and CO2
Made of 70% Renewable raw materials.
A high-performance material that maintains the strength of conventional plastics, does not tear easily, and is more resistant than other bioplastics to mechanical stress and moisture.
Only fully biodegrades when in a composting environment
Does not give off methane while its composting, A common contributor to the amount of methane gas released into our environment is plastic waste biodegrading (when exposed to sunlight) as well as decaying plants (responsible for 30%).
