Eastman Chemical Company: Biodegradable plastic

Eastman Chemical Co. (Kingsport, TN) introduces Eastar Bio Ultra copolyester, a new entry in its line of Eastar Bio biodegradable resins. Copolyester has a higher melt viscosity than its sister product, Eastar Bio GP copolyester.

Engineered to be durable, Eastar Bio Ultra biodegrades to carbon dioxide, water, and biomass in 180 days in a commercial composting environment. Applications include agricultural films, lamination films for rigid food packaging, and leaf and lawn waste bags. Copolyester is approved for food contact in the European Union and the United States. Can also be used to strengthen rigid packaging structures such as produce and meat trays, significantly increasing the volume of materials suitable for disposal in composting facilities.
