New Delhi , Feb. 11
Priti Plastics Pvt Ltd has tied up with the UK-based
Symphony Environmental Ltd to market the latter's d2w,
a biodegradable additive for the manufacture of
plastic.

Mr Haresh Dugad, Chief Executive Officer, Priti
Plastics, said the plastic produced using d2w degrades
much faster compared to conventional plastic that may
take up to 400 years to degrade. "When added in the
normal manufacturing process, it causes plastics to
break down totally into water, carbon dioxide and a
small amount of bio-mass," he added.

Mr Michael Laurier, Managing Director, Symphony
Environmental Ltd, said, "The additive can be used for
manufacturing plastics for all kind of usages,
including packing food items. We believe that with the
growing environment consciousness in India, this
technology will find many takers."
