In order to create biodegradable* plastics, EcoPure® is added during the plastics product manufacturing phase.
Plastic product application methods and amount needed varies based on the type of plastic resin, desired rate of biodegradation, and end product thickness.
EcoPure® can be used in a wide range of plastics products, including:
- Water bottles
- Plastic packaging
- Food storage
- Garbage bags
- Polystyrene cups
Designed to blend well, while not altering the physical properties of polymers, EcoPure® can be seamlessly added while manufacturing a wide range of plastic products. EcoPure® additives added in the manufacturing process do not disrupt the look, feel, or durability of plastics. It only enables plastic products to have enhanced biodegradation* properties, in a microbial disposal environment.

* 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.
