THE CONCIOUS CHOICE
Unique enzymes embedded in Otratex during its production give this phthalate-free vinyl its enhanced degradability. Within 30 years, the material fully decomposes when placed in an anaerobic environment such as a landfill, returning to the natural elements that comprise it.
Once in an oxygen-deprivedenvironment, Otratex attracts microbes that colonize its surface. The microorganisms secrete enzymes that, in turn, attract copious amounts of water. The water expands Otratex’ surface, providing the microbes with access to the chemical polymers in the material
Microbes break Otratex’s polymer chains into simple organic monomers, with microorganisms eating different parts of the polymer as well as any by-products from the reaction. This degradation continues until every chain is reduced to its raw elements, with only biomass and biogases left behind.
