The demand for biodegradable plastics has been increasing in recent years due to increasing public concern over increasing plastic waste in the environment. The plastics industry has been working on various methods to develop biodegradable plastics.

Oxo-biodegradable is the most practical and economical product that makes plastics biodegrade relatively quickly in the environment.

It enables polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS) to degrade and, in most cases biodegrade, when discarded, into environmental products within a few months compared to common plastics which take hundreds of yeards to decade in the environment.
