Radical Plastics has developed a technology that involves blending conventional plastics with a proprietary, naturally-occurring catalyst. When properly compounded, this catalyst has the ability to render plastic biodegradable in the natural environment.
This two-stage degradation process begins with a chemical phase, in which the long polymer molecules are broken down to smaller components by a free radical mechanism.
This triggers a second, biological phase in which microorganisms in the environment see these components as food and metabolize the material turning it into biomass, CO2 and water.
Radical Plastics technology can make a significant contribution in the battle against plastic pollution. By replacing existing, non-degradable plastics with biodegradable compounds from Radical Plastics, converters and brand owners can enjoy the outstanding properties of conventional plastics with the added benefit of complete biodegradability.
Radical Plastics' Solution to Making Conventional Plastics Biodegradable
This product profile describes the features and applications of the ElectroGreen™–Xylene substitute for electronics.
The Stäubli Megawatt Charging System (MCS) offers rapid and effortless charging, allowing drivers to manually charge their electric heavy-duty vehicles without relying on robots or supporting machines.
Anguil's robust Vapor Combustion Unit (VCU) can handle a wide range of emission flow rates. It is as easy to use as an enclosed flare and as effective as a thermal oxidizer.
This interview with Jeff Retzke examines how Denali is revitalizing mine sites and restoring ecosystems through innovative reclamation practices.
In this interview, AZoCleantech speaks to Anguil about the decarbonization of battery manufacturing,
and how to make the industry greener from testing to recycling.
In this interview, AZoCleantech talks to Olivia Madamba about Ethylene Oxide (EtO) opportunities and the new regulations proposed by the EPA.
