Davao-based company to produce biodegradable plastic additive – PhilippinesPosted on December 11, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
Robert del Fierro, president of Delfi Agriventures Corp., said the type of biodegradable plastic bag they will produce will be using a technology called “biosphere,” which is an American technology that has been used by advanced countries as an additive in making genuine biodegradable plastics.
Delfi have made a wise choice with this additive to make plastic landfill biodegradable. This is the only technology at this current time that provides a realistic solution to future plastic waste elimination.
A slight correct is needed, they said ‘Oxodegradable take 12-18 months to decompose in a landfill’. Oxo’s do not decompose in a landfill as they need oxygen to fragment apart and there is little to no oxygen in a landfill. Even the oxo additive makers admit this is true.
