Bio-Batch - Begg & Co Thermoplastics


A revolutionary Biodegradable Masterbatch based upon proven and reliable technology to solve your brands environmental needs.

Just 1% Bio-Batch™ will render the majority of polymers 100% Biodegradable, including LDPE, HDPE, PP, Polystyrenes, PET and even PVC within 1-5 years.

Apply to your existing products, coloured or natural clear, utilise your current polymer, machinery and tooling. Bio-Batch™ has no effect on your products appearance or physical performance, whether your product is designed to last 1 day or 20 years.

Process, recycle, and reprocess again,Bio-Batch™ only becomes active once a product has reached its final destination, Landfill.

Bio-Batch™ offers your product and brand environmental integrity for a minimal unit cost.

How does it work?

Bio-Batch™ works by encouraging and supporting the bacteria present when products naturally biodegrade to convert the base materials of the plastic into a food source for microbes, with no harmful or toxic residues.

Typically, PE or PP products take between 80 and 450 years to break down in the environment.

Look what Bio-Batch™ does to a 40µm LLDPE film buried in soil in just 30 days !!
