It is also known to represent the Japanese aesthetic in itself. This tattoo or drawing is often considered a type of minimalist art and an “expression of movement”.
ENSO RESTORE - Additive technology to enhance the biodegradation of traditional materials, including PET, PE, PS, PVC, Nitrile, Rubber, Latex, Phenol, PP, adhesives and more. These materials enhanced with ENSO RESTORE biodegrade 90% faster than without ENSO RESTORE. This includes biodegradation within landfills, as validated by independent certified laboratories using ASTM International test methods.
ENSO RENEW - Renewable biopolymer used as a standalone polymer or as a polymer replacement for PE and PP. This ASTM D6400 certified bio-resin is made from agricultural waste material, is fully edible, home and industrial compostable, marine degradable and is semi-water soluble.
Custom Solutions – ENSO is a trusted partner for companies worldwide; creating unique environmental solutions, customized applications and materials for specialized projects and materials.
These solutions are critical as sustainability is more than simply “going green” and it is no longer sufficient to run status quo. Today’s market is dynamic, educated and the expectations of your customers are high. Providing sustainable solutions demands experts that understand the performance, design and disposal of your product to encompass the “3 R’s” - REDUCE, REDUCE, REDUCE.
Reduce Cost: Our goal is to reduce your costs, because we understand bottom line is that your bottom line must be sustainable, and all environmental decisions must be balanced with expense. Our solutions are designed with efficiency and cost as a determining factor which allows ENSO to remain the leader in competitive pricing and leading edge solutions for plastics sustainability.
Reduce Materials: ENSO solutions allow you to reduce the amount of petroleum based material used in your applications, compared to alternative green solutions. Our biodegradable and renewable solutions are used in very thin films and light-weighted packaging without loss in performance and properties, many manufacturers find increased performance and the ability to further lightweight materials when using ENSO solutions.
Reduce Waste: There are two primary forms of waste; scrap during manufacturing and product waste after use. ENSO has eliminated the historical high scrap rate due to processing difficulties and material incompatibility with alternative plastics. With ENSO you received fine-tuned solutions that easily integrate in your machines and processes. And, whether your product is disposed of in a landfill, marine or compost environment, ENSO has the solutions for your application and prevent long term waste problems.
ENSO Plastics is the expert in plastic sustainability, providing the knowledge and experience to evaluate your materials and create tailored solutions ideal for your product performance needs and sustainability goals.

*Independent 3rd party testing has shown up to 24.7% biodegradation within 160 days in optimized conditions. Actual rate of biodegradation will vary dependent upon environmental conditions and the biological activity of microorganisms surrounding the plastic.
Today, information spreads quickly through blogs, social tools, emails, and websites. Unfortunately, not all of it is accurate or correct.
If you have any questions about plastic recycling, biodegradable polymers, biodegradable packaging, or plastics in general, feel free to ask us.
We believe that an important part of our business is to provide education on the topic of biodegradable plastics, so let us address any questions you may have.

Anomalies: Variations from an average or other statistical reference value.
Bimodal: Having two peaks (or modes).
Buoyant: As the air is heated it expands, becoming less dense than the air above it.
Convection: The transfer of energy by moving the heated molecule from one place to another – also the rising of heated air which forms cumuliform clouds and results in precipitation.
El Niño: Literally, El Niño translates to 'The Boy Child' and is a reference to Jesus as a baby.
Holocene: The current geological epoch, beginning about 10,000 years before the present.
Infrared: Wavelength of radiation longer than visible light and associated with the 'heat' given off by a body.
Moche: A pre-Colombian civilization in northern Peru that existed from about 100 to 800 A.D.
Paleoclimate Proxy Data: Climate information from before the invention of atmospheric monitoring instruments. This information is derived from known chemical and bioliogical indicators in layers of glacial ice, corals, sea floor sediments, tree rings, etc.
pre-Colombian: Referring to South and Central America in the period of time before European influence.
Pressure Gradient: A change in air pressure over a distance. The stronger the gradient, the faster the air will flow from the high pressure to low.
Sea Level Barometric Pressure: The force exerted by the atmosphere at sea level (zero meters elevation) as measured by a barometer.
Standardized: Adjusted so values from samples with different properties (e.g., months) can be compared to each other
Thermal Expansion: Heating an uncontained fluid or gas results in an increase in its volume as it attempts to maintain a constant pressure. In the ocean, since only the surface is unbounded, the expansion increases the sea level.
Thermocline: A zone beneath the ocean surface at which the surface water transitions to deep water, and a marked decrease in water temperature occurs. In both the surface (or mixed) layer and in the deep water, temperature is relatively constant with depth. Within the thermocline, water temperature quickly decreases from surface water temperature to deep water temperature.
Trade Winds: Winds in the tropics generally flow in an east to west direction (easterlies). So called because their consistency facilitated transoceanic sailing and commerce.
