MultiPlast Systems, Incorporated (MSI) of Solon, Ohio, a manufacturer of renewable and sustainable packaging material (www.multiplastsystems.com), has announced that they will be expanding their manufacturing and application capabilities for its organic, degradable, resin additive for enhanced end-of-life sustainability for plastic packaging and products.
Founded in 1998, MSI has developed proprietary, sustainable, resin packaging options for clients primarily in the food and hospitality industries. One of their primary areas of focus (in addition to PCR and microbial control) has been BEDA, a Bio-Enhanced Degradable Additive that provides a practical, low-cost solution for companies and customers that value products that ultimately degrade in landfills since over 75% of waste in the US ultimately ends up in landfills.*
Different from conventional bio-degradable plastic, BEDA is shelf-stable, remains inert for the life of the product (thereby maintaining its integrity over time), and degrades in landfill conditions. That is because BEDA simply attracts the natural microorganisms that live in landfills that consume the resin with no fragmentation. This natural dynamic significantly accelerates the degradation process.
“We are very pleased to expand the use and applications of BEDA to other markets that appreciate the low-cost sustainable solutions that we provide. BEDA is the practical solution for any company that is concerned about the environment and utilizes plastic (or plastic coated) packaging and/or markets disposable plastic products to target audiences looking for reasonably priced sustainable solutions,” remarked Jeff Apisdorf, Founder/President of MSI.
MultiPlast Systems, Incorporated currently works with leading hotel chains and distributors including Marriott, Hilton, Wyndham, Choice, and Sysco Guest Supply for a variety of product lines including laundry bags, can liners, and guest amenity program packaging.
