What is ENATM

The only technology in the world that makes conventional plastics biodegradable in landfills, anaerobic digesters, compost facilities, and the ocean. Due to a recent ruling by an administrative judge, (in February 2015,) ENATM treated plastics, such as LDPE, can now be labeled as 'biodegradable' in the United States, without any qualification. The state of California does not permit this designation, but federal regulations permit it when there has been a positive ASTM D5511 test for biodegradation. ENATM has tested positive for biodegradation in an ASTM D5511 test.

At Earth Nurture, we are dedicated to seeing that more and more of the plastic disposable items we use every day rejoin the cycle of life. We sell Earth Nurture masterbatch additive for rendering conventional plastics biodegradable in commercial compost facilities, landfills, anaerobic digesters, and in natural bodies of water.

Earth Nurture has a masterbatch additive for every common plastic, and many uncommon ones. Earth Nurture has a masterbatch additive that will cause the biodegradation in commercial composters, natural bodies of water, and landfills of: Polypropylene (PP,) Polyethylene (PE,) Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE,) High Density Polyethylene (HDPE,) PET ( Polyethylene terephthalate ,) Polystyrene (PS,) Expanded Polystyrene (EPS, sometimes called Styrofoam, which is a trademarked brand of EPS,) Nylon, and even Polylactic Acid (PLA.) (A masterbatch additive is an additive which is added to the masterbatch, which is the plastic as it is being melted for final fabrication into sheets or molded products.)
