Amdek’s proprietary Plant Based Plastic mix is suitable for use in many items. It is currently used in items such as disposable cutlery and containers. This is ideal because they break down after being disposed, which is an advantage over conventional oil-based polymers that will perhaps stay intact for 100s if not 1000s of years. Plant-base polymers allow for an instant decrease of carbon footprint when conventionally disposed of in a landfill. The vast majority of single use items end up here. When put in a recycle bin, Amdek’s material will readily react with thermoplastic material used in new products such as flooring, plastic deck boarding or recycled plastic siding.
