Sacks degrade in the field

Silex Trading in the United Arab Emirates has developed plastic rubbish sacks which contain British firm Symphony’s d2w oxo-biodegradable and d2p anti-bacterial technologies.

The sacks were introduced at January’s Arabplast exhibition in Dubai. They are designed to combat bacteria, and will convert into biodegradable material and degrade if they escape authorised disposal and end up in the open environment.

Symphony’s d2w technology is now approved by the Oxo-biodegradable Plastics Association and has recently been awarded the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards’ Eco-Label.
