The Oxo-biodegradable Plastics Association (OPA) exists to provide information to encourage
greater understanding of oxo-biodegradable plastic technology and how it can protect the
environment for future generations. There are 1,602 members of the Association, who are
manufacturers, distributors, importers, exporters and commercial end-users of oxobiodegradable plastic products in 96 countries.
We will deal with the specific points made in the Call for Evidence, but it may be helpful if we first
explain the context in which oxo-biodegradable plastic was invented and has been in commercial
use for more than 20 years.
Symphony Environmental Technologies plc (LON:SYM) is a world leader in the development of additives to make ordinary plastic biodegradable and protective technologies to enhance plastic products.
