We now have new Biodegradable nitrile gloves in stock that break down 10x faster than standard nitrile. These are called Bluple Nitrile Gloves and they do not take an extended period to biodegrade using BDG technology.
So what is BDG technology? BDG technology integrates the existing manufacturing process with compromising product quality. It comprises of an organic addictive to accelerate the biodegradation rate of gloves in biologically active landfills.
How does it work? BDG is a ‘food source’ specially formulated to attract microbes found in landfills. When bacteria consume the BDG they excrete and enzyme that dissolves and de-polymerises the polymer chain. The process called mineralisation allowing the microbes to break down the remaining polymer naturally, leaving behind only biogas, eater and inert soil.
So why choose the Bluple Nitrile Gloves? Firstly to contribute to the sustainable development goals of making a sustainable and brighter future. Global waste grows every year and is expected to grow to 34o billion tonnes by 2050, we are running out of space. Globally about 37 percent of waste is dumped of or disposes of in landfill. If this continues we will have no space left for living. Using Bluple Nitrile Gloves also lessens the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and just overall minimises waste. As BDG contains and organic additive it is also an eco friendly option in the medical industry to reduce the risk of cross contamination, along with use in the food industry as they are made in compliance with regulatory bodies.
