Biotransformation & Biodegradation

Cycle+ Breaks Down Completely & Harmlessly Without Microplastics

Innovative biotransformation technology means natural processes break down Cycle+ plastics harmlessly on land. The process does not create microplastics or harmful chemicals that are damaging to the environment.

1 | Service Life

The innovative Cycle+ catalytic formulation ensures complete stability of the packaging material for a fixed time with no loss of strength or appearance.

Time is set depending on customer requirements, during the manufacturing process.

2 | Weathering

2-4 months

Packaging made with Cycle+ technology breaks down harmlessly on land.

Natural Biotransformation starts after service life finishes; air, soil moisture and UV light start the weathering process, eventually transforming the packaging into into a bioavailable wax material that is no longer a plastic and is not harmful to the environment.

3 | Biodegradation

Up to 24 months

The bioavailable wax is biologically transformed through mineralization by naturally occuring bacteria and fungi in the natural environment.

PE and PP films and rigids fully biodegrade as verified by 3rd party labs, leaving no microplastics behind.

4 | Final Result

It Can Be Easy To Be Green

Cycle+ Breaks Down Completely & Harmlessly Without Microplastics

Innovative biotransformation technology means natural processes break down Cycle+ plastics harmlessly on land. The process does not create microplastics or harmful chemicals that are damaging to the environment.
