Additive That Makes Plastic Harmless Has Potential to Be Biodegrading Game-Changer

DM

Branding itself as the only plastic that ‘truly’ biodegrades, a new materials company is manufacturing plastics that break down into harmless component elements in less than a year. A special ingredient is added to the manufacturing stage of plastic to create completely normal forms of plastic that can be used to make both rigid or flexible products, allowing no great overhaul of production lines or schedules. Seriously big companies are not waiting for extensive testing to begin adding Polymateria’s special biodegrading plastic to their operations, even though the UK firm has done tests that confirm their claims that after around 226 days, a harmless wax, edible by microbes, is the only thing that will remain of something like an ice-cream wrapper if left on the side of the road.
