What are the advantages of using TDPA™ in mulch film?

Mulch films are the third greatest use of plastics in agriculture.  Mulch films made with conventional polyethylene are typically burned, buried, stockpiled, or disposed in landfills. None of these disposal methods are environmentally sustainable.

TDPA™ mulch films degrade after their product life; upon completion of biodegradation, they return to nature in the form of carbon dioxide, water and biomass. Moreover, TDPA™ mulch films behave comparably to conventional mulch films and help maximize crop yields, and reduce irrigation and pesticide requirements.
