Poliloop's bacteria cocktail is capable of biodegrading a variety of plastics without the need for sorting or pre-washing. This now only increases efficiency but reduces operating costs. With Poliloop, plastics that were once deemed fit for landfill find new life.
The bacteria use the carbon in plastic as a sole carbon source, integrating it into their metabolism. The process is akin to the way organic waste is consumed in the composting process. The key difference is the process is conducted on fossil based pollutants.
What our bacteria have achieved is turning what was once a fossil-based product (plastic packaging) into what it originally was millions of years ago. Part of the natural ecosystem of Earth.
