What d2w does?

d2w accelerates the natural process of oxidation until the product is no longer a plastic,
but a material which can be bio-assimilated (i.e. used as a food source) by bacteria
and fungi on land or sea.

Best of all,  if  it escapes collection and ends up as litter in the environment, it will degrade and
biodegrade in a continuous, irreversible and unstoppable process until there is nothing left,
in the same way as nature’s waste.

Is it globally used?

Several countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East have already legislated to require
everyday plastic items to be made with oxo-biodegradable technology  –  because it works.

new biodegradable packaging.
