Ezonyx, a biotech company, is beginning production on its biobased resin material, EarthPCB™, and plans to have it available as soon as August 2020. EarthPCB™ stands for Earth Plant Compostable Biodegradable and it is being used to replace petroleum-based plastics in the food, cosmetics, medical device, and durable consumer goods industries. EarthPCB™ is FDA Title 21 Food Contact Compliant, non-toxic, microwave/freezer/dishwasher Safe, and BPA-Free. Additionally, EarthPCB™ was tested by Eden Research Laboratory and the results showed that EarthPCB™ is biodegradable and compostable.
EarthPCB™ is allegedly patent-pending, however, no patent has published yet. Stay up to date on patent activity by subscribing to the Biodegradable Packaging Sector.
