Cannasupplies is stocking child-resistant cases manufactured using a FDA approved biodegradability enhancing additive.
The accelerator additive helps naturally present enzymes in landfill environments to infiltrate the molecular structure of the material in order to break it down quickly. It does not depend on sunlight or oxygen to degrade. The product is currently undergoing ASTM D5511 landfill environment testing to report the biodegradation performance. Contact us to learn more.
This accelerator is not a microplastic causing oxo-degradable/oxo-biodegradable additive
Oxo-degradable/oxo-biodegradable (interchangeable term) additives depend on UV light to breakdown the molecular chains in plastics. Plastics with this additive would disintegrate on a shelf and thus in addition need to have a UV blocker additive added to them. When the UV blocker eventually wears off in sunlight, degradation begins, and continues so long as UV exposure is maintained. If one of those plastics is buried, the degradation process slows dramatically.
