EcoLogic, a company creating and providing environmentally responsible solutions for plastics globally, announced that company president, James Rooney will be speaking at Smithers Rapra's Biopolymers Symposium 2013 on June 12th in Chicago, IL.
EcoLogic, LLC owns, manufactures and markets Eco-One™ brand of additives for plastic products worldwide. Eco-One™ is an organic additive that enhances the biodegradation of plastic products in a biologically active landfill (appropriate facilities are not available in all areas).
Biopolymers 2013 will take place over one and a half days and will open each day with a plenary session before moving into tracked sessions which will allow attendees to create an agenda best suited to their business development needs.
The 250+ anticipated attendees will also hear from a diverse group of bioplastics developers, manufacturers and end-users including Algix; BIOFASE, Cascade Engineering; Cereplast; Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute; European Bioplastics; IBM; Kimberly-Clark; Metabolix; NatureWorks; Procter & Gamble; Seattle Mariners/Safeco Field; Virent; Volvo Group Trucks Technology and 30+ additional speakers.
In his presentation, Mr. Rooney will discuss how plastic biodegradation in landfills is a feasible, responsible solution for persistent landfill and environmental waste. Mr. Rooney will also talk about how the Eco-One™ solution positively challenges the notion that recycling and composting are the only true environmental avenues to reducing plastic waste.
Additionally, this presentation will explain how proper sustainability practices do not need to be a burdening investment on business. Attendees will leave this session with a deeper understanding of the benefits and science behind enhanced biodegradable plastic. "We are pleased that EcoLogic representatives have been given the opportunity to speak at the Biopolymers 2013 symposium," said James Rooney, President of EcoLogic, LLC.
"This speaking opportunity is especially significant as it is the perfect platform to adequately explain how and why biodegradation is a feasible solution for plastic waste."
"EcoLogic was a very exciting addition to this year's agenda at the Biopolymers Symposium and we're very happy to have them in our session on alternative end of life solutions for zero landfill," said Barbara Fowler, conference director for Smithers Rapra. "The purpose of this event is to bring together all of the key players in the industry right now to discuss the latest applications, materials and business ideas and EcoLogic will be a key contributor to that conversation."
Formed in January 2010, EcoLogic owns, manufactures and markets Eco-One™ brand of additives for plastic products worldwide. Eco-One™ is an organic additive that enhances the biodegradation of plastic products in a biologically active landfill (appropriate facilities are not available in all areas). Independent ASTM D5511 tests, representing biologically active landfills, have shown 5-15% biodegradation within 30 days. Eco-One™ is scientifically unique and validated for enhanced biodegradation.
Our goal is to drive value for our customers by providing them solutions to meet increasing government, industry and consumer demands for environmental sustainability and biodegradability.
