- ASTM D5526 Certified – 100% bioassimilation in under 27 weeks in a simulated landfill environment.
- ASTM D7475 Testing in Progress
- Customized based on intended lifespan of the product.
- Universal equipment compatibility
- Food safe, GRAS by FDA
A non-recyclable plastic product made with the Puroplast Bioaccelerator is discarded into a bioactive landfill.
The Puroplast Bioaccelerator begins to break down the product in the abiotic zone of the landfill.
As more trash is added to the landfill the product will enter an anaerobic and biotic environment.
The Puroplast Bioaccelerator will then accelerate the breakdown of the product, transforming it into short-chain molecules, palatable for microbes to eat.
Hungry microbes will consume the short chain molecules, leaving no toxic or visible trace, including microplastics.
The materials in our products are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and are safe to be used for direct and indirect food and beverage contact.
“GRAS” is an acronym for the phrase Generally Recognized As Safe. Under sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act).
