d2p antimicrobial technology set to protect commuters in Guarulhos, Brazil

Symphony Environmental reported that Extrusa Pack, a Brazilian plastic manufacturer and user of Symphony’s d2w and d2p technology, has announced a donation to provide the entire public bus system in the city of Guarulhos -858 vehicles in total, with d2p anti-microbial film to cover seats and handles, protecting its over 400 thousand regular users from Coronavirus and multiple bacteria and fungi normally present on these surfaces. The donation was agreed with the City’s Mayor who personally visited the factory where the films are made.

In a public statement, Gisele Barbin, Commercial Manager for Extrusa Pack commented: “We wanted to contribute in some way to tackling the pandemic, and as we already manufacture garbage bags with this important antimicrobial technology, we only need to adjust the factory equipment to produce the protective plastic film. Knowing the priority that Mayor Guti has given to dealing with this virus, we decided to donate and apply the films to the buses. More than 400 thousand passengers now have extra protection against infection on public transport.”

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.
