Oxo-biodegradable Plastics Federation

Symphony Environmental Ltd has not joined the newly-formed “Oxo-biodegradable Plastics Federation” but is glad that the other suppliers of oxo-biodegradable plastic additives have now realised that it is necessary to engage in public relations and lobbying to promote a better understanding of oxo-biodegradable technology, and to counter the misleading information disseminated mainly by the vegetable-based plastics industry and by some recyclers. We wish the OBPF well in this endeavour.

Symphony is a founder-member of the Oxo-biodegradable Plastics Association (OPA) which has been engaged in this work for 15 years and from which the other oxo companies have all benefitted. We hope that the two organisations working together will make a big difference to the perception of oxo-biodegradable plastic technology in the plastics industry and among consumers and governments worldwide.

There are currently no discussions as to whether they may merge in the future.
