The plastic treatment is used in this technology as a source for growth of bacteria
culture. The inhibited Bacterial culture has been enumerated under laboratory
tests. The total fungal and bacterial counts in biodegradable polyethylene bags
have been observed as CFU/g*. A definite bacterial group found alive and active
in these bags treated with our enzymes proves that the soil bacteria and the
bacteria group present in the bag jointly eats away at the polyethylene film
leading it to total biodegradation. Bacterial and fungal counts were enumerated
and classified by Vimta Labs. The total fungal count is <10 CFU/g and total
bacterial count is 25 CFU/g. * (Colonial Forming Unit per gram of polyethylene.
As bacteria have been enumerated as CFU, further multiplication of bacteria
cannot be ruled out.

Enzyme with polyethylene
used in this product are regarded a catalysts,
helping to change the chemical reaction of polyethelene
accelerating the process of degradation. Autotrophic
bacteria present in mineral salts mediums containing
some form of nitrogen-energy supplying material
are also used in this technology. Carbon is obtained
from the added oxidation agents in this product.
The PH values of this composition blended with
polyethylene is 9.5 confirming its non-acidity
characteristics. All the ingredients of our plastic
products are food grade and non-toxic in nature.
is observed that soil contains at least 58% Carbon.
The greater part of the Nitrogen content of the
soil is closely linked to organic matter. As the
organic soil matter gradually decomposes the nitrogen
is converted into water or available forms of ammonia
and nitrates. This moist soil reacts with the biodegradable
polyethylene film making it susceptible to composting
and the release of CO2.
The enzymatic treatment is used at 1-1.5% dosage for Polyethylene (90% HDPE,
10% LLDE) and mechanically coated. The use of this product makes Polyethylene
(HDPE LLDE) 100% Biodegradable. The cost of this process is very cheap as compared
to any other method prevalent in the world. An application for a patent for
both the biodegradable enzyme treatment and the process of manufacturing biodegradable
bags is already submit with competent authority.
