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.)
ENATM stands for Earth Nurture Additive for rendering the conventional plastic, polypropylene and polyethylene biodegradable.
ENATM harnesses the power of complex interactions in various microbial enzymatic systems to cause conventional plastics to biodegrade in moist, microbe laden environments including soil , landfills, and compost heaps.
ENATM does not affect the properties of plastics made with it, except for making them biodegradable in suitable environments.
ENATM does not cause biodegradation in storage environments such as warehouses or kitchen shelves.
ENATM works quickly, and it works in environments with or without oxygen, as long as there are microbes and moisture present.
