UK JUDGE FINDS THE CASE FOR OXO-BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC PROVEN Symphony Environmental Technologies PLC has today (5th November 2018) warmly welcomed a report by the distinguished lawyer and former deputy Judge of the High Court in England, Peter Susman QC, … Continued
“It is no longer tenable to conclude that there is ‘no firm evidence either way’ whether oxo-biodegradable plastic technology is effective. I consider that recent research provides clear and compelling evidence that oxo-biodegradable plastic is indeed effective in facilitating very significantly speedier degradation than is the case when that technology is not used.”
All the judge is saying here is it make degradation faster. Degradation is the fragmenting of the plastic into small bits of plastic. This is a worse situation for the environment. It is facilitating the production of microplastics which we are learning now are the real problem items.
