Pakistan International Airways agrees to use “d2w” technology in its plastic packagingPosted on June 15, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
Plasteurope.com is a business information platform for the European plastics industry.
This is an odd thing to do. International air line rubbish has strict quarantine regulations to avoid transporting microbes across countries.
All a oxo additive will do it make the plastic cups etc fragment into lots of little pieces of plastic, but only if the plastic is left in the air above ground. So what is an oxo going to do here? If they take them off the plane they either go to a landfill or a WTE plant. In a landfill the oxo doesn’t work and in a WTE, where the plastic is incinerated, the oxo provides nothing here either. IT would appear the air line has been conned by the oxo sales people.
