EcoPure® additives enhance the biodegradation* process of a full range of plastic resins including:
EcoPure® can also be custom engineered to meet your business’ unique needs. EcoPure® will not alter the integrity of the base plastic resins. EcoPure treated, biodegradable* plastics will maintain their original look, durability, and shelf life until the product has been disposed of in a landfill environment.
EcoPure®’s formula was developed by engineers to activate in the presence of landfill-specific microbes and enzymes. This means that the organic additive only starts allowing the breaking down of plastic when it has reached its end of life destination – disposal in a landfill.
* 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.
