3 comments on “Reverte Biodegradable PET

  1. Plastic bottles are a growing problem in our landfills and oceans. We felt that something needed to be done……and now.

    We knew that there wasn’t going to be one “fix it all” answer and began to wonder if anything was ever going to be done. The problem was growing every day, more bottles were being manufactured and more bottles were accumulating in places where we didn’t need them.

    We were wondering if “Earth Friendly Bottles” would ever be available?

    That’s why decided to do our part and started ENSO Bottles. We are partnering with other companies to offer a PET plastic bottle that will biodegrade, compost or recycle.
    Our plastic bottles can enter the normal recycling stream with regular PET plastic bottles.

    ENSO’s goal is to achieve sustainability with our plastic bottles. WE feel that ENSO plastic bottles can provide a useful service and have a positive impact on our environment.

    We all need to do our part and support recycling programs, construction of bio-reactor landfills and continue developing technology that will make plastics “Earth Friendly.”
    We’re doing those things at ENSO, we offer a plastic bottle that is earth friendly…it’s just one step in the right direction. If we all take just one step toward improving our planet….we will make a difference.


  2. So let me get this straight: our country has been working on building a recycling industry and culture for over 25 years, and now, because of “actual, albeit unfortunate, consumer behavior” we are ditching it?

    How about a Bottle Bill? Oregon just expanded ours to include all beverage containers.

    btw, modern landfills are ‘dry tomb’ engineered to minimize biodegradability.

    I like Max’s plan to make bottles that are compostable as well as recyclable — if that is possible.

  3. The article above claims that the bi-product is CO2 and water. What about heavy metals? I have seen reports that heavy metals are a bi-product of the degradation process of oxo-biodegradable “reverte”.

    Is there any data behind the claim of CO2 and water, or is this just hype to get traction in a market that is disperately seeking the silver bullet?
