Bio-Tec Environmental’s EcoPure is an organic additive that causes plastic to biodegrade.
After the breakdown of the pandemic, the use of single-use plastic has peaked higher than ever before due to its high exploitation in the medical industry to match the ongoing needs. Bio-Tec Environmental developed EcoPure, an organic additive designed to enhance the speed of plastic decomposition.
Biodegradation rates of EcoPure-treated plastic materials measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method on 20% to 30% solids content show the result that 55% to 65% and a maximum 93% degrades in naturally wetter landfills and in really dry landfills respectively, but the degradation may vary on the factors like the plastic used, the product configuration, and the solid content, temperature and moisture levels of the landfill.
EcoPure is a great option and a great alternative because of its properties like maintaining the strength of the plastic, biodegradation starts only after reacting with microbes found in landfills. Being thoroughly tested and proven, EcoPure additives are tested using the ASTM D5511 test method and proven to biodegrade plastic at a highly accelerated rate and are highly versatile that can be manufactured according to any plastic used by the businesses.
