Biodegradable Plastic Features, Usage, Role in Environmental Support, History

A test for biodegradability aims to show that materials or products like for instance plastic film, bags, forks or packages are biodegraded during a specified time and to a high percentage.

The biodegradation is performed by microorganisms in either water or in soil/compost.

This critical knowledge of plastics, state of the art ISO 9001 production site, extensive independent third party testing results,

and thousands of internal oxo-biodegradability tests for our customers generated in our onsite laboratories operating in accordance with ISO17025 means that Wells Plastics are partners who can contribute.

Wells Plastics have worked with Brand owners to develop an optimised Reverte system which will give the highest technical performance at a cost-effective price.

Wells Plastics have developed a special agricultural film grade which can be dosed at different levels to achieve different breakdown kinetics to suit the crop.

By using biological treatment techniques according to EN 13432, the respective goals in the European Parliament and the Council’s directive 94/62/EG can be fulfilled.

Laws that forbid landfilling of combustible waste (since 2003) and organic waste (since 2005) also have increased the interest for more usage of biodegradable and/or compostable materials.
