Symphony Environmental - world leader in environmentally responsible plastic technology
Symphony's d2w technology can be used to shorten the life of a wide range of plastic products made from Polyethylene (PE) or Polypropylene (PP), including single, multi layered and laminated degradable materials, and including virgin, recycled or blends of these polymers.
Field trials are ongoing with Polystyrene (PS) and scientific experiments are being conducted on PET. PVC is not suitable for biodegradation, and d2w is not necessary for cellulose.
The following are examples of products which can be made with d2w technology:
Products such as these are now being made with d2w and used by some of the world's largest companies, who undertake many months or even years of due-diligence before they adopt d2w. Last year Symphony sold enough d2w to make 5 billion plastic products.
Any small extra cost is outweighed by the significant marketing, PR and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) benefits of degradability.
To purchase these products online, go to Symphony Shop.
In May 2007 the Periodical Publishers Association of the UK recommended to all its members that oxo-biodegradable film should be used for wrapping their newspapers and magazines for distribution.
More products will become available in due course.
