Plastic is one of the greatest innovations of mankind with its wonderful properties. It can hold almost one thousand times its normal weight. But the biodegradation of plastic takes a very long time, in some cases 1000 years to disintegrate the material. The disposal of plastic then creates the problem of increased garbage and overflowing landfills, especially the single-use ones. Oxo Biodegradable Additive for plastic by Lifeline Technologies could be the answer to this problem.

Degradation of Oxo Biodegradable Additive based plastic begins as soon as it comes into contact with UV light which breaks into very tiny pieces to make it easier for microorganisms to naturally biodegrade it. Oxo Biodegradable Additives are made using metal ions like iron, nickel, cobalt, etc. that makes it more susceptible to photodegradation and makes it ready for the microorganisms to ingest and biodegrade it.
