SpecialChem / Sep 1, 2011

EcoLogic, a global technology company creating environmentally responsible solutions for plastics, has announced an agreement with GEA Biodegradables S. de R.L. de C.V., to distribute the Eco-One™ additive throughout Mexico. GEA biodegradables will distribute EcoLogic's Eco-One additives throughout Mexico. These additives are compatible with the following resin types: PE, PP, PET, PS, Nylon, ABS, PVC, and Polycarbonate.

GEA Biodegradables was formed to focus solely on bio additives for plastics. The privately held parent company has years of experience in resin distribution, compounding and plastic bag manufacturing. "Mexico is considered a high growth market for biodegradable plastic solutions as legislation has already been passed in Mexico City to ban the use of plastic bags that are not biodegradable," said Sachin Shah, Director of Sales and Marketing for EcoLogic. "GEA's parent company has been involved in the plastics industry for over 35 years and their knowledge and network is keys to the success of expanding use of Eco-One throughout Mexico."

Gerardo Garcia, General Manager for GEA Biodegradables stated, "After extensive review of various methods, technologies and products for making plastics more sustainable, we determined that EcoLogic's Eco-One additive is far and away was the best suited for the Mexican market. We are thrilled to work with EcoLogic and look forward to a successful venture."
