Enviro-IceTM is a re-usable gel pack with a biodegradable film. Lasting longer than ice, the refrigerant gel is designed to protect your product from freezing or over-heating.
Cryopak's specially formulated Enviro-Ice gel packs contain elements that nurtures and feeds the microorganism community. Through natural selection, specific microorganisms that "feed" on the elements in the film are left in the soil around the film. This specialized community of microorganism have the ability to breakdown the long hydrocarbon plastic chains that make-up the film. In an aerobic situation the microorganism will breakdown the hydrocarbons until they are transformed into carbon dioxide and water. Depending on the community of microorganism it can take anywhere from 9 months to 5 years.
Enviro-Ice is able to biodegrade in the following environment(s):
• In compost (backyard and commercial facilities)
• Buried in the ground
• Argicultural / Erosion-control settings
