Our belief is that because most plastic is made primarily from natural gas, a fully circular solution should not just have plastic be mechanically recycled, but for many applications plastic should also be easily converted back into natural gas. The gas temporarily used for plastic will not only protect our food and other products, but it can turn back into energy in an anaerobic biodigester environment which would offset other more harmful energy inputs.
Imagine a world where efficient plastic not only disappears in our generation but one pound of BioFlex plastic could power our next generation of electric cars for over 12 kms. We have a very hopeful future if Bioflex plastic is widely adopted and this award is a very helpful endorsement. To learn more about Bioflex™, visit us online at bioflexpackaging.com.
Approximately 14,000 businesses are licensed in Richmond – only 30 nominees advance to the finalist stage each year, with 10 recognized as award recipients in the 10 Business Excellence Award categories. Layfield was honoured to be considered a finalist with London Drugs and IKEA Canada.

*BioFlex™ has been shown to produce biogases 22 times faster than conventional plastic in the ideal conditions of an anaerobic digestor landfill over 2.13 years, using the ASTM D5511-12 test. When disposed of in a landfill with modern biogas capture technologies, this energy can be harnessed as a source of renewable energy. Such a facility may not exist in your area.
