EcoPure® and Sustainable Plastic Manufacturing: A New Era

December 5, 2023

In an era where environmental concerns are paramount, Bio-Tec Environmental’s EcoPure® emerges as a beacon of innovation in the plastic manufacturing industry. Developed as a biodegradable plastic additive, EcoPure® is transforming the way businesses and consumers view plastic products. With an increasing global emphasis on sustainable practices, EcoPure® offers a viable solution to the pressing issue of plastic pollution.


EcoPure®: A Game-Changer in Plastic Biodegradation

  • Biodegradable Transformation: EcoPure® significantly enhances the biodegradability of plastics. By integrating this additive into the manufacturing process, plastics that typically take centuries to decompose can now biodegrade within years.
  • Compatibility and Versatility: EcoPure® is compatible with a wide range of plastics including polypropylene, PVC, PE, and EVA, which are some of the most commonly used plastics today.
  • Safety and Compliance: Not only does EcoPure® facilitate biodegradation, but it also meets FDA standards, making it safe for food and drug packaging​​.


The Science Behind EcoPure®

  • Microbial Activation: The key to EcoPure®’s effectiveness lies in its ability to be broken down by microbes once it reaches a microbe-rich environment like a landfill.
  • Eco-Friendly Breakdown: It allows for the plastic to be broken down into simple organic compounds, significantly reducing its environmental impact.
  • Energy Production: An added benefit of this breakdown process is the production of methane, which can be captured and used as a source of energy​​.


EcoPure® in Manufacturing: Seamless Integration

  • Manufacturing Ease: Incorporating EcoPure® into the manufacturing process is seamless, requiring no retooling or significant changes to existing production lines.
  • Low Concentration, High Effectiveness: The additive is effective even at low concentrations (around 0.7%), making it both cost-effective and efficient.
  • Maintaining Product Integrity: Products treated with EcoPure® retain their strength and durability, ensuring that the additive does not compromise the quality of the plastic.


Bio-Tec Environmental: Pioneering Sustainable Solutions

  • Company Background: Founded in 2003 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Bio-Tec Environmental has been at the forefront of biodegradable plastic solutions. Their first product, Bio-Batch, laid the groundwork for the more advanced EcoPure®.
  • Continued Innovation: The company is dedicated to continual improvement and is developing variations of EcoPure® to suit all types of plastic fabricators​​.

EcoPure® represents a significant step forward in addressing the environmental challenges posed by synthetic plastics. By allowing for the rapid biodegradation of plastics in a safe and effective manner, EcoPure® paves the way for a more sustainable future. Manufacturers seeking to align with environmental sustainability can greatly benefit from incorporating EcoPure® into their products.

For businesses and individuals interested in reducing their environmental footprint and contributing to a cleaner future, adopting EcoPure® is a decisive step towards sustainable plastic manufacturing.
