Symphony Environmental Technologies plc is planning to help set up an operation in Montreal to distribute its oxo-biodegradable plastics additive in the United States and Canada.
The firm, based in Borehamwood, England, says its d2w-brand additive promotes degradation in a controlled manner after the plastic is subjected to heat, light and stresses. Once degradation starts, it continues even in landfills and under water, the company claims. Degradation periods of 60 days to six years can by designed into a product, Symphony said. The additive is mixed with a range of plastics during the extrusion stage.
