EVRgreen® is Your Solution

At Epsilyte, we make strategic decisions based on an environmental sustainability foundation. Epsilyte’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in the development of our revolutionary EVRgreen advanced material. This innovative material is designed to address the pressing need for a more sustainable approach to plastic packaging, which currently accounts for a significant portion of the world’s waste.

EVRgreen is a biodegradable technology that reacts into the polymer during manufacturing, transforming standard molded products into materials with a new end-of-life story. This technology breaks down the material into organic matter, water, and carbon dioxide, which can be safely and naturally assimilated into the environment.

But that’s not all – products made from EVRgreen® are still fully recyclable, allowing them to join the efforts to fix the U.S. recycling problem. By incorporating this technology into our products, Epsilyte proactively reduces waste and promotes sustainability.

EVRgreen is a solution that works now, providing a more sustainable and responsible option for businesses and consumers. By choosing EVRgreen products, you can contribute to a more sustainable future for our planet, while still enjoying the durability and quality of Epsilyte’s advanced materials.

Epsilyte’s Sustainable Product Strategy


Biodegradable by Nature, Helped by Epsilyte

With EVRgreen technology, Epsilyte materials used in disposable applications will be well over 90% gone in four years. This is why we say, “biodegradable* by nature, helped by Epsilyte.”*

Physical Property Performance

Epsilyte’s biodegradable* technology does not negatively impact physical property performance.
Water is an integral part of the biodegradation mechanism for our advanced materials. But we understand our customers rely on Epsilyte materials to keep their perishable shipments dry. Epsilyte has extensively tested materials made with our EVRgreen technology to ensure solid (and dry) performance.

Other Benefits

EVRgreen technology processes through an enzymatic degradation process (not oxo degradation), so rest assured, your product made with EVRgreen technology will not:

  • Become brittle
  • Affected shelf life
  • Create microplastics
  • Require UV protective packaging
  • Change the base resin properties
  • Biodegrade without a micro-rich environment

Unique Advantage of Recyclability

Products made with EVRgreen technology can be recycled. When polymers go through the recycling process, they experience additional heat histories—each heat history a polymer experiences causes performance deterioration because of molecular weight loss. Unlike oxo-degradable technology, EVRgreen does not accelerate the loss of molecular weight in recycling. Because it uses an enzymatic biodegradation process instead of an oxo degradation process, EPS with EVRgreen advanced technology is one of the first biodegradable* plastics NOT to impact recyclability.

*EVRgreen EPS biodegrades 94% over four years compared to cellulose using the ASTM D5511 test that simulates wetter and biologically active landfills, which do not exist in all parts of the U.S. The stated rate and extent of degradation do not mean that EVRgreen will continue to degrade.

Speaking of Recyclability, Epsilyte Brings you Advanced Materials Manufactured with 50% Post-Consumer Recycled EPS!

124LR, Formulated for Shape Molding
This innovative material is formulated for molded parts requiring a smooth surface finish over various densities. 124LR is specifically designed for packaging applications, not for FDA applications.

Certified by SCS Global

124LR conforms to the SCS Recycled Content Standard V7-0 for a minimum of 50% post-consumer recycled content.

*EVRgreen® EPS has been shown to biodegrade 92% over 4 years under conditions that simulate both wetter and biologically active landfills using ASTM D5511 test. While 80% of landfills are wetter or biologically active, they may not exist in your area. The stated rate and extent of degradation do not mean the product will continue to degrade.

California Notice: California law prohibits the sale of plastic packaging and plastic products that are labeled with the terms ‘biodegradable’, ‘degradable’ or ‘decomposable’ or any form of those terms, or imply in any way that the item will break down, biodegrade or decompose in a landfill or any other environment. These restrictions apply to all sales in or into the State of California, including such sales over the internet. For sales in or into California or any other jurisdiction which prohibits such claim by law, rule, or regulation, Epsilyte makes no claims that EVRgeen® product will break down, biodegrade, or decompose in a landfill or any other environment.
