PlasTek™ is patent-pending technology created by Inviroment™ that facilitates the biodegradation of all types of plastic found in landfills. PlasTek™ is sprayed onto waste as it enters a landfill and begins to decompose any plastic it touches, resulting in additional landfill capacity. It also accelerates methane output from plastics, which can be collected from landfills as a source of clean energy.
