New Additive Said to Turn Plastic Waste to Compost

11th May 2018

Called NEO PlasticsTM , the additive comes from NEO Plastics, whose Marty Tierney, Director of Business Development, describes it as an all-organic compound that gets added to a masterbatch of plastic resin so that packaging made from that resin will break down in anaerobic conditions like landfills in years vs. the centuries that traditional plastics require. In the case of Maplebrook Farms' packaging, it's injection-molded polypropylene containers that get the NEO Plastics additive.
