White paper challenges the assumption that biodegradable plastics in landfills are an inadequate end-of-life solution compared to recycling or composting. The reality is plastic is going into landfills in enormous amounts, and biodegradability can confer advantages to such landfilled plastic packaging waste.
White paper from Eco-One discusses methane-to-energy benefits of biodegradable plastics. Analyzes current drivers for energy recovery from landfill gas (LFG) including tax credits, utility pricing incentives and renewable energy incentives.
White paper from Ecologic examines and challenges the arguments that biodegradable plastics must degrade in the same "short period of time" as a compost facility, especially over concerns about leaching contaminants into the soil.
White paper from Ecologic answers all the basic questions surrounding biodegradability, including biodegradation in landfills and composting environments. Describes the waste products from plastic biodegradation, as well as applicable ASTM test standards.
White paper explains how integrated motor/drive servo technology permits Aagard to build case packers that are highly customized to specific applications with features like changeover flexibility, smart recovery from sudden machine stops, without expanding machine footprint.
