Biodegradable Plastic - Living Green and Earth Friendly
Over the past 20 years, more and more emphasis has been placed on living "green" and being environmentally conscious in the creation of industrial products and solutions. Throughout this time, there have been many different attempts aimed at creating the most environmentally friendly plastic products. This has brought about not only the introduction of biodegradable plastic but also the perfection of its creation.
Many early plastic products that were touted as biodegradable plastics were simply a play on words for the public until the Federal Trade Commission cracked down on their claims and created a standard that now must be attained in order to be considered " biodegradable plastic". In essence, the qualifications in order to be considered biodegradable are that the material must be scientifically proven to break down completely and return to nature in a short time frame. The creation of such materials can be costly and complicated, but Biosphere is trying to help solve those issues.
Biodegradable Additives from BioSphere Plastic
Through years of research and development BioSphere has created some of the highest quality biodegradable plastic additives while maintaining affordability no matter what size of industry or product you may be creating material for. Not only is the quality and affordability putting this product in the reach of thousands of companies, but we have also worked with the Federal Trade Commission to increase the speed by which our biodegradation takes place, making it the fastest in the market today.
BioSphere's biodegradable plastic additive works within a three tiered system. Within the tiers are the secrets to not only how the additive works so efficiently and easily, but also contains the keys to making it individualized for each companies specific needs and fine tuning the degradation to be at its maximum effect. To learn more about how our biodegradable plastics work, you can view the biodegradable plastic additive - How It Works page.
How Our Product Can Help You Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Manufacturing with BioSphere's biodegradable plastic additive will give microbes the ability to secrete acids and consume your product, turning the products into Ch4, Co2, biomass and water, in the fastest timeframe on the market. BioSphere's biodegradable additive enhances the ability for microbes to consume the plastic at a much faster rate by adding in key features to the polymer. This in turn enhances the biodegradability of your plastic without changes to your processing equipment, physical properties and the final product's shelf life. This results in an end product that is 100% shelf stable (unlike products manufactured with the use of oxo-degradable additives).
Whether your currently using a biodegradable plastic or additive, partnering with BioSphere is clearly the next step in producing the next generation of your biodegradable plastic product line. Your product will be able to solve the market's demand for an earth friendly solution, all while keeping your manufacturing costs in line.
