Breakdown Plastic™ - BDP PP / BDP PET

ScreenShot 2018-11-29 at 09.48.26

For a number a number of reasons, billions of plastic containers find their way to landfill sites every year rather than being recycled for re-use. 

Our packaging made out of BDP-PP and BDP-PET provides end-of- life solution to these discarded containers, enabling them to naturally decompose in a few years rather than centuries.


BDP-PP and BDP-PET are recyclable AND biodegradable*. 


Biodegration rates are measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method for determining anaerobic biodegration of plastics under water high solids anaerobic digestion conditions. Tests are generally conducted using 50% solids content. Solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actuall biodegration rates will vary in biology-active landfills according to the type of plastic used, the product configuration, and the solid content, temperature and moisture levels of the landfill.


When talking about biodegradable plastics, it is very important to understand the definition of the biodegradation process. This term has been grossly misused and misunderstood. By definition, plastics that fragment or degrade through chemical reactions, ultraviolet radiation and / or mechanical processes are not biodegradable. They are simply degradable and in most cases you get as a result, toxins, heavy metals like cadmium, nickel and cobalt, and residues of the polymer in the environment.
