Icon Plastics has been working on sustainable plastics for many years recycling our own waste and excess raw material, however as global and local markets evolve so too must our awareness, as we move towards a greener way of life we have been developing new bio-degradable and compostable materials.

With the global push on reducing plastics in the packaging market we have directed our attention to better alternatives that have a low to zero impact on the environment without the excess resources to produce and are cost competitive.

  • Its biodegradable nature and the sustainable process by which it is made.
  • It can break down into its natural elements in less than a month under the right circumstances.
  • It is compostable in approximately 6 – 36 months depending on the thickness of the product in a home composter.
  • It can break down in approximately 6 – 48 months depending on the thickness of the product in sea water.
  • Emission of greenhouse gases during production is lower. As plants consume carbon dioxide during the growing period, the greenhouse gas emission of the iEFP production process can be considered negative or “carbon neutral”
  • Is a desirable material for recycling meaning it can be heated , set upon cooling and reheated again then reshaped without any degeneration.
  • It is recyclable in a loop process where it can be reprocessed into a food source for animals.
  • iEFP can be incinerated with no toxic fumes generated.
  • It can be frozen and is domestic freezer safe.
  • iEFP has international standards EN13432, AST D6400, ASTM D6868, AS 4736, AS 5800, OK Compostable and OK Home Compostable approval.
