Our biodegradable plastic additive technology is the most advanced in the market today, setting a standard for not only price, but also enhancing the methane potential in landlls to power our homes and offices.
billion dollar organization that we have been working with over the past year to provide enhanced features at the lowest cost. We are proud to announce our product into the plastic market at a reasonable additive cost of 7-12 USD per KG. This will allow countries to utilize our product and the customers pay very little for the benets of a sustainable solution creating energy in both electric forms and gas forms for communities surrounding them. BioSphere plastic enhances the methane potential of all active landll gas projects worldwide, from China to the USA. BioSphere biodegradable plastic additive works in major resins, including HDPE, LLDPE, LDPE, PE, PP, GPPP, PS, XPS, ABS, PET, APET, RPET, PETG, PLA, PBS, PBSA, PGA and various other resins and bioresins to increase biodegradation at extremely high rates, depending on how much product you utilize in your plastic product. Our compound has great thermal stability up to 260 C and maintains all physical characteristics of your nal product. We are not an Oxo-Degradable product, we are a Biodegradable Additive that enhances the biodegradation of your plastic by allowing microbes to break down the polymer chains and turning them into CH4, CO2, Biomass and water. For further information visit our website for biodegradable plastic.

Our product has been tested utilizing the ASTM D5511-12 method the ASTM D5526-12 method and the ASTM D6400-12 Standard for composting, BioSphere does not believe composting is the right decision to be made when throwing away plastic articles due to the complications of composting plastic and the enhancement of landll gas technologies utilizing landll gas for energy. Our biodegradable plastic additive is manufactured by a multi-

country is Austria. Currently in the United States 2 compost facilities accept compostable plastics, the technology just is not there to compost plastics, in the US or around the wor ld. Composting plastic creates more emissions in compost facilities due to the CO2 release of the biodegradation of the corn based plastics and it is therefore good for those corn based plastics to end up in a landll environment. Which is why composting plastics is not only absurd it is essentially hurting our environment more then helping it.

594 Landlls in the USA capture LFG.


2 compost facilities accept PLA for composting,

Currently the EPA has 594 landlls utilizing methane gas for energy composting in the USA and around the world is not reducing the total amount of carbon efcient enough to capture PLA or compostable plastics. emissions in the USA. Composting companies and bioplastic companies have asked, how many landlls actually use methane gas and turn it into energy? Simple, the EPA has listed this on their website and states that an enormous amount of energy has been created, due to landlling and has reduced emissions, some 7.2 million homes being powered, reduction of emissions upwards of planting 55 million acres of trees or taking 33 million cars off the road tomorrow. These are not only staggering gures, but it is obvious why some companies dont want the public to know the exact gures. Worldwide, landlling and LFG to Energy projects are on the rise, some countries have more LFG projects then composting projects. Currently 1 countr y compost more then turning landll gas to energy, that
