TUBSKY® and Eco-Pure® are the perfect combination.
To minimize the environmental effects of plastic waste, Bio-Tec Environmental, LLC, created EcoPure®, an organic plastic additive that is proven to increase the rate of plastic biodegradation* in treated plastic products.
EcoPure® Plastics Biodegrade* in Landfill Environments
EcoPure® accelerates the biodegradation of treated plastics in microbe-rich environments, including landfills, where more than 80% of plastics are disposed. According to D5511 test results, EcoPure® significantly accelerates the biodegradation process, resulting in safely degraded plastics in a fraction of the time.
EcoPure® - Landfill Biodegradable Technology
Biodegradation is a process where micro-organisms metabolize substances, in this case plastic, and break them down to simple molecules
Plastics treated with EcoPure® show enhanced biodegradation* (Anaerobic) rates as compared to untreated plastics
Does not need heat, sunlight or enhanced mechanical stress to break down
Biodegradation* occurs in a landfill disposal environment
REACH / FDA compliant / Recyclable
Oxo-degradable plastics degrade when exposed to heat and/or light. The additives serve to initiate and accelerate break-down of the plastic by a process known as ‘oxidative degradation’. Exposure to heat and/or light causes the molecules to break apart so that the plastic weakens in strength, becomes brittle and fragments into small pieces.
Require heat, sunlight or enhanced mechanical stress to degrade instead of disposal environment.
While some products are renewable, they can have unintended detrimental side effects to the environment.
BioPlastics or Bio-Based Plastics
Bioplastics (or bio-based plastics) are be made from renewable resources like cornstarch. Some types of bioplastics are biodegradable but not all of them are.
A bio-based plastic is a plastic derived from a renewable source.
Negative effect on the recycling stream.
