Biodegradable Technology

Products made with d2w biodegradable technology look and feel like conventional plastic.
The difference is that if a bag or packaging made using  d2w escapes collection and ends up as litter
in the open environment, they will degrade and  biodegrade in a continuous, irreversible and unstoppable
process until there is nothing left.

In the same way as nature’s waste, and without leaving toxic residues or microplastics behind.

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

 

 

 

Technical Description

Descriptivo técnico

d2w – Tecnología para degradación de embalajes con vida útil controlada

Many countries use biodegradable technology

Several countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East have already legislated to require everyday
plastic items to be made with d2w technology.

Biodegradable plastic

It looks and feels like ordinary plastic.
In terms of strength, aesthetics, flexibility and optical properties.

Only 1% of d2w can make the difference.
Included at the manufacturing stage, at only 1% – means little or no extra costs.

It complies with international standards.
Biodegradable products are tested according to ASTMD6954 and other
international standards.  They were found to be Degradable, Biodegradable and Non eco-toxic.

SASO and ESMA Approved
The first to be approved

It is non-disruptive
A drop-in technology,  so no need to change suppliers.

It is recyclable (Recycling)
d2w can be recycled with conventional polymer and can be made with recyclate.
As demonstrated by expert laboratories in Austria and South Africa

Suitable for food contact
According to FDA & EU food contact regulations.

No Toxic Residues and No Microplastics
