EXO Biodegradable Technology in our bags
A revolutionary bio-renewable supplement for plastic resin made from waste sea shells. The core ingredients of EXO Technology, EXO-LLD, are organic extracted from the processing of sea shells waste. This waste product is sourced from a waste stream close to the manufacturing site of our bags.
The core ingredients of EXO are Chitin, Aragonite and Calcite. The Chitin, which is the outer layer of sea shell is a bio-polymer providing strength and durability of bio-plastics as well as encouraging microbial activity on disposal which accelerates biodegradation in thin plastic like our bags. Aragonite, a naturally occurring carbon mineral formed by biological and physical processes including precipitation from freshwater and marine environments and makes up most of the calcium contents of our bags. The third ingredient is Calcite which is the same calcium carbonate found in rocks like limestone and chalk but the EXO calcite is sourced from a renewable source.
All three of our renewable ingredients are combined and processed into a micro fine powder which is then compounded into a pellet of LLDPE. This is then added to the synthetic resin that makes up the rest of our biodegradable poop bags.
Our dog poop bags contain around 20% bio-renewable content.
A bit more useful info for you about EXO Technology
Now you can replace a quarter of the fossil-fuel polymers in plastics with a sustainable, bio-renewable material!
EXO-LLD resin supplement is made using a patented technology which harnesses the power of the polysaccharides and organic calcium naturally found in waste sea shells.
These raw ingredients are abundant and form part of a sustainable waste stream generated by the world’s expanding aquaculture industry.
When EXO-LLD is blended with conventional synthetic polymers, it creates a durable bio-plastic that can be used to make extruded, thermo-formed and injection-moulded items.
With EXO-LLD, a substantial percentage of the petrochemical polymers in everyday plastics can now be replaced with a bio-renewable material.
EXO – Why Our Exo Bags Are a Great Alternative Solution To Just Straight Forward Plastic
The bio-renewable Chitin in our EXO bags encourage microbial activity to accelerate biodegradation.
With EXO-LLD, a substantial percentage of the petrochemical polymers in everyday plastics can now be replaced with a bio-renewable material, worth thinking about!
