Bubble Wrap is 100% oxo-biodegradable.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring d2w® additive, non-toxic Bio-Bubble® has shelf life of 1 year and breaks down naturally once exposed to environmental factors such as oxygen, light, and mechanical stress. Process of degradation acts as nutrient for microbes, which eat broken down plastic molecules, reducing plastic to water, carbon dioxide, and trace biomass. Additive can be incorporated with no supply chain interruptions and can be programmed for short-term or long-term degradation.

Advance Excelsior Introduces New Oxo-Biodegradable Bubblepack

Bio-Bubble(R) Provides Companies with Environmentally Friendly Packaging Solution HOUSTON, Jan. 11 /- Advance Excelsior Company, a specialist in industrial packaging solutions, has launched Bio-Bubble, the world's first 100% Oxo-biodegradable bubble wrap. It contains Degradable Polymer Products' (DePoly) revolutionary additive d2w(R), which causes plastic products to degrade and ultimately biodegrade in a predetermined timeframe, causing unsightly plastic waste to vanish. Bio-Bubble(R) is non-toxic, has the same resiliency as traditional bubble wraps, has a programmable shelf life of approximately one year and breaks down naturally once exposed to the environmental factors such as oxygen, light and mechanical stress. Don Rauscher, President of Advance Excelsior, said, "Companies that use Bio-Bubble can basically, through strategic labeling and communications, remind their customers that they're environmentally responsible and gain loyalty from a significant portion of their customer base. The technology behind Bio-Bubble(R) is really amazing, and we're proud to be doing our part to keep plastic out of the earth." Roger McLelland, CEO of DePoly, said, "We expect many more companies to follow Advance Excelsior's lead in using d2w(R). The benefits are obvious and we are seeing huge demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions. This technology makes it easy for companies to be proud of their choices and show their customers their commitment to the environment." Bio-Bubble(R) breaks down during a two-stage process enabled by the d2w(R) additive which has a proprietary composition and is safe for direct food contact. The additive breaks down the carbon-hydrogen bonds in plastic and reduces plastic's molecular weight and overall strength. The process of degradation also acts as a nutrient for microbes, which then eat the broken down plastic molecules, reducing what was once plastic to water, carbon dioxide and trace biomass. The degradable plastic additive technology allows for d2w(R) to be added to plastic product during the manufacturing process. The additive is easy to incorporate, with no supply chain interruptions and can be programmed for short-tem or long-term degradation depending on product type and customer needs. The additive in Bio-Bubble(R) is non-toxic - not harmful to humans or the environment, including animals and plants. Bio-Bubble(R) is part of Advance Excelsior's bubble-based Excel-Aire(R) product line, which includes the company's degradable loose-fill product, Bio- Pack.
