Cutting-edge additives for manufacturing biodegradable* plastics

Forward-thinking, sustainable solutions for the plastics and landfill gas-to-energy industries

ECM BioFilms is leading the sustainability movement within the plastics and landfill gas-to-energy industries with an additives for manufacturing biodegradable* plastics–creating an entirely new and greatly desired end-of-life scenario for plastics–and simultaneously opening up exciting  new opportunities for energy generation and recycling the hydrocarbons of old plastic products into new plastic resin.

“This revolutionary additive technology, when combined as a 1% load with the most widely-used plastic resins, renders the resulting plastic products biodegradable* while maintaining their other desired characteristics”

The plastic products made with ECM BioFilms’ technology are priced competitively with, and have the same mechanical characteristics as, traditional non-degradable products. Unlike other degradable plastic technologies which require very specific conditions, plastic products manufactured with ECM MasterBatch Pellets will biodegrade in any biologically-active environment (including most landfills) in some period greater than a year. This revolutionary additive technology, when combined as a 1% load with the most widely-used plastic resins, renders the resulting plastic products biodegradable* while maintaining their other desired characteristics.

The potential uses of this technology are limited only by the imagination.
