Environment

D2W is a formulation of additives carefully researched and tested, which is added to the plastic in the extrusion process, representing 1% of all plastic material used.

Here at Glhoe, we are very concerned with the environment and the natural environment. We are aware of the responsibility of the manufacture of products from plastic and all it entails. From the beginning, we investigated how we could assist in reducing human impact on the environment with our products.

Therefore, we decided to incorporate into our baskets, additive “D2W”, which controls the life of plastic and makes “smart” plastic. D2W is a formulation of additives carefully researched and tested, which is added to the plastic in the extrusion process, representing 1% of all plastic material used.

Process Oxo-Biodegradable Plastic

The additive is added in the manufacturing phase.

The product behaves like any other basket, but is also environmentally friendly. 

After their service life, the plastic can fully biodegrade in to the environment.

Plastic stages Oxo – Biodegradable

The Oxo – Biodegradability in plastics, manages to minimize the huge footprint of man, by returning to nature components in the form of carbon dioxide emitted so slowly, it is not a contributor to global warming.  It also emits moisture which is absorbed by the environment, and biomass, which is used as food microorganisms.

Stage 1.

D2w additive is included in the base resin of the polymer during the manufacturing process.

Stage 2.

D2w breaks the molecular chains and the plastic begins to degrade in the presence of oxygen and heat.

Stage 3.

Thanks to the oxygen present an oxidation process, which is accelerated by light, heat and stress is given.

Stage 4.

Finally the complete biodegradation by microorganisms.

After a period of stability provided by the antioxidants contained in the additive, a breaking of carbon-carbon bonds in the molecular chains, ie, a split in the chain causes. The plastic product becomes brittle and disintegrates into small flakes. This stage can be described exactly as bio-degradation. At this point the material is no longer plastic.
