Norland Partners with Planet Green Bottle Corporation

NEW: Norland International has partnered with Planet Green Bottle Corporation to introduce oxo-biodegradable (oxo-bio) PET preforms and plastic bottles to the bottled water industry. The oxo-biodegradable additive to PET resin considerably speeds up bottle decomposition. PET bottles containing no oxo-bio additives take an estimated 1,000 years or more to decompose. PET bottles containing the oxo-bio additive naturally decompose within four to ten years in standard landfills, significantly lessening environmental impact of discarded bottles.

All Norland blow molders process the new oxo-biodegradable PET performs.
