EcoPure® Economy additives accelerate the biodegradation* of traditional, petroleum-based plastic products.
This is done in a biologically active landfill and can be used in different concentrations depending on your needs. The EcoPure® Economy product line is designed to be more cost effective than EcoPure® Premier additives and offers a slower rate of biodegradation*. This slower biodegradation* rate is advantageous in specific plastic applications.
Bio-Tec Environmental offers the following EcoPure® Economy additives:
- EcoPure® EVA Economy
- EcoPure® PF Economy
- EcoPure® PET Economy
* Biodegradation rates of EcoPure®-treated plastic materials measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method. Tests are generally conducted using 20% to 30% solids content; solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically-active landfills according to the type of plastic used, the product configuration, and the solid content, temperature and moisture levels of the landfill.
