EcoPure® additives are engineered to accelerate the biodegradation* process of plastics.
Added during the plastic manufacturing process, the additive is only activated after the product reaches a micro-biologically rich environment, such as a landfill.
EcoPure® is added from between 1- 4% depending on the plastic application, to achieve desired biodegradation* results. Running temperatures remain the same as your standard plastic processing and minimal adjustments, if any, need to be made to your production process.
Bio-Tec Environmental, LLC’s polymer engineers will work with you to determine the proper EcoPure® additive for your specific product application. Contact us today!
* 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.
