Bio-Tec Environmental developed EcoPure which is an organic additive that is designed to accelerate biodegradation "through a series of chemical and biological processes in a landfill disposal environment." The product is being offered as a solution to companies and manufacturers who are seeking to strengthen their dedication to sustainability.
The organic additive becomes active only when in the proximity of microbes found in landfills, meaning that while in use, EcoPure is effective and "just as strong as non-treated plastic." As a result, the product is quite versatile and ideal for anything from "disposable single-use products to custom-engineered durable goods [to meet the unique needs of clients]."
When taken into consideration that there are "approximately 250 million tons of trash produced in the United States annually," and innovation with accelerated biodegradation rates becomes a crucial development.
