Symphony is a British public company dedicated to finding technical solutions to environmental and public health problems. Symphony's advanced plastic technologies include d2w oxo-biodegradable plastics, which convert at the end of their useful life into a material with a different molecular structure. At that stage the material is no longer a plastic and has become inherently biodegradable in the open environment in the same way as a leaf. For a video of a bag degrading please click here.
Symphony has also developed d2p, a range of anti-microbial plastics, and plastics which inhibit the growth of fungi, mould, algae and bacteria. For a video about d2p please click here.
In addition to anti-bacterial and anti-fungal plastics Symphony is developing sophisticated tagging and tracing technologies and has introduced "d2Detector" a portable device for analysing plastics and preventing fraud. For a video about d2Detector please click here
In order to deal with the growing problem of scrap tyres Symphony has launched the "SymTyre-S300" - a highly efficient portable machine that can convert a scrap tyre into three flat-pack components within 60 seconds. For a video about SymTyre-S300 click here
