Evanesto® is an additive that speeds-up the biodegradation and compostability of PLA-based plastics. This additive, based on an enzyme, accelerates the depolymerization of PLA to achieve Home Compost certification. Used as a masterbatch, it requires no changes in industrial transforming processes. With Evanesto® inside, PLA-based plastics become universally compostable both in industrial and domestic conditions. Thanks to Evanesto®, plastics that are too thin, soiled or made from multi-materials can be composted whereas they couldn’t be recycled today. The additive can help tackle plastic pollution and change consumers behaviours regarding plastic and the sorting of wastes. It is a turnkey solution that targets millions of tons of plastic wastes that are incinerated or landfilled today, creating major pollution issues the solution aims to tackle thanks to composting, a complementary solution to reuse or recycling of plastics.
