‘Why Biodegradable?’ has been translated into  Portuguese and Spanish


  1. d2w biodegradable masterbatch is added at the manufacturing stage.
  2. Film containing d2w biodegradable masterbatch is extruded and then converted into bags or packaging.
  3. The product behaves like conventional plastic during its intended service life.
  4. After its service life, the bag or packaging may be recycled if collected, but :
  5. If it ends up in the open environment the d2w additive takes effect and the product begins to degrade in the presence of oxygen.
  6. The product will then biodegrade in a continuous, irreversible and unstoppable process leaving nothing more than carbon dioxide, water and biomass behind – no heavy metals or other toxic residues.
