Bioxo is a line of containers made from totally oxo-degradable polystyrene foam. Bioxo containers are specifically designed to degrade within three years, unlike traditional polystyrene foam containers which can require several hundred years to degrade. Bioxo is the result of the addition of TDPA (Totally Degradable Plastic Additives), developed by the Vancouver-based firm, Environmental Technologies Inc. (EPI). TDPA technology is designed to speed up the oxidation/biodegradation process by fractioning large molecules in plastic into smaller, more easily degraded molecules. Additives are mixed into basic plastic resins at the time of manufacture to give them specific degradation properties, without compromising safety or utility.
