CORTEC CORP.: Bioplastic
EcoOcean™ is a new bioplastic that can offer a combination of environmental and performance benefits, including flexibility and strength, commercial and low-temperature backyard compostability, 77% annually renewable raw material content, and anaerobic and marine biodegradability. EcoOcean films and bags reportedly bridge the environmental and performance gap that has existed for decades with other films.
“EcoOcean™ will revolutionize the use of flexible packaging, especially in coastal areas of the world,” said Boris Miksic, CEO. “Ideally, EcoOcean is disposed of in commercial composting, or in oxygen-deprived anaerobic digestors. However, as is seen worldwide, plastics can still end up in the waterways-even in communities with the harshest and strictest penalties for litter.”
The material will be offered in standard sizes and forms in over 70 countries worldwide to serve end-user and converter markets.
