Leading Environmentalist talks about oxo-biodegradable Plastic

Chris Packham, environmental broadcaster, photographer, and journalist joined the Oxo-biodegradable Plastics Association (http://www.biodeg.org) earlier this year as its Environmental Advisor. Following this year's high level of exposure of "oxo-biodegradable" plastics in the news, Chris spoke to the OPA to highlight the need for change in relation to managing waste, and gave his views on the advantages of using oxo-bio plastic technology.

“There would be no North Pacific garbage patch if all the plastic had been oxo-biodegradable,” comments Chris, re-enforcing the need for this technology to be made compulsory, as is the case in the UAE.

He later goes on to say “the recommendations in the Loughborough Report aren't entirely justified, and there is certainly some confusion when it comes to oxo-biodegradable plastics in relation to re-cycling and composting.”

Symphony Environmental Technologies launches billboard in London

Symphony Environmental Technologies Plc, the specialists in degradable plastics, have launched their London based Billboard, to coincide with the prominent plastics trade exhibition 'K-Show' in Dusseldorf, Germany. The Billboard is part of Symphony’s Integrated Marketing Campaign which continues to grow as a result of strong financial results.

The billboard can be found at: West Cromwell Road Nr North End W14 9AA

Symphony has a diverse and growing customer-base and has established itself successfully as an international business.

Symphony has developed a special additive which turns ordinary plastic at the end of its useful life into a material with a completely different molecular structure. At that stage it is no longer a plastic and has become a material which can be bio-assimilated in the open environment in the same way as a leaf. It will degrade automatically, without any human intervention, on land or water without leaving any harmful residues. It can also be recycled and re-used during its useful life, like ordinary plastics. Products made with d2w plastic technology are now being sold by 57 Distributors in more than 90 countries around the world and in many different product applications. The technology is branded d2w® and appears as a droplet logo on many thousands of tonnes of plastic packaging and other plastic products.
