ECO II, 100 % oxo-biodegradable - Available today

    MONTREAL, March 12 /CNW Telbec/ - ECO II Manufacturing is proud to
announce the launching of a very new line of bags which are 100%
oxo-biodegradable. The main quality of these products is that they are totally
degradable in less than 2 years at a temperature of 45 degrees C, which is the
average temperature of landfills, in accordance with ASTM D6954-04. In ideal
landfill conditions, these products disintegrate in as little as 12 weeks. The
ordinary plastic bag, takes over 400 years.
    The Canadian company ECO II Manufacturing has introduced a new
pro-degrading additive which enables oxo-biodegradable bags to be
environmentally friendly while keeping their quality of being strong,
watertight and durable. Being technically more complex to process, the
majority of available ecological starch-based bags are more expensive to
manufacture, and lack quality and tensile strength. Furthermore, they are not
as durable since they are neither reusable nor recyclable in other plastic
transformations. ECO II BIO 100% oxo-biodegradables are more cost-effective,
of equal quality to regular plastic bags; they do not disintegrate before
reaching the landfills and do not contain controversial chemicals.
    ECO II BIO bags have undergone many tests by the Quebec Industrial
Research Center (CRIQ) in order to validate their performance in various
fields. The preliminary technical reports state that the ECO II BIO products
are presently the only bags which show the fastest degradation process while
still being the strongest. Furthermore, CRIQ validates the fact that they
offer a wider range of recovery being the only biodegradable bags which are
also recyclable.
    This genuine product of the future is now available at most hardware
stores, convenience stores and pharmacies in Canada. They will be officially
launched at the Montreal National Home Show, starting March 14, 2008 (Place
Bonaventure, stand 2102) and the Toronto National Home Show starting April 4,
2008 (Direct Energy Centre, stand 3645).
