Yes. And what’s more, the additive can be used in recycled plastics. Imagine a world where companies start making plastics that already exist biodegradable in landfill… companies could begin to reach beyond carbon-neutral and into carbon-negative.
Are Bio-Form products recyclable?
Photo- and oxo-biodegradable products have been around for a while. The problem with these is two-fold:
as soon as they’re made their quality starts to degrade
most will end up in landfill without light or oxygen, and therefore won’t biodegrade at all
Bio-Form products are the first to address the problem at its heart – plastics end up in landfill, so that’s where they need to biodegrade.
Is this different from other plastics?
In a word, no. Our products look completely the same as untreated plastic. They also have the same strength and durability. We guarantee you won’t be able to tell the difference.

Revolutionising Hotel and Airline Plastics
At Bio-Form we sell plastic products using a ground-breaking additive that speeds up the degradation process in landfill.
Almost 90% of the world’s plastic ends up in landfill, taking between 500 and 1,000 years to degrade.
This is a very real and present problem.
Our products biodegrade in landfill in under 5 years, and unlike other solutions, there is no impact on the product’s appearance, functionality or stability.
80-90% of the world’s plastic ends up in landfills,
taking 500 - 1,000 years to degrade.
Bio-Form is powered by Breakdown Plastic’s patented additive.
This blend of organic ingredients is proven to transform the rate of plastic biodegradation.
Plastics biodegrade as naturally-occurring microbes attack the complex polymer chains they're made of. Typically this takes centuries
Bio-Form products go through the same process 100x faster. The additive encourages microbial activity, breaking the plastic down into water and methane.
Our products look and behave exactly like untreated plastic. We guarantee you won’t be able to tell the difference.
Bio-Form has the exclusive right to sell Breakdown Plastic products into the airline and hotel industries.
We can incorporate our technology into any plastic polymer, and are proactively doing so in four areas:
On-board Meal Service
Amenity Kits and Contents
We want to help airlines address their environmental concerns, and are constantly expanding our range. Please contact us if you’re interested in adding our technology to any other products.
The Breakdown Plastic additive has proven it's extraordinary properties under robust laboratory testing (ASTM D5511).
Independent 3rd party testing has shown up to 24.7% biodegradation within 160 days in optimized conditions.
