Companies seeking to lower their environmental footprint have a variety of options using Nomaco foams.  Polyethylene foam can be reused and recycled, making it an optimum selection for many applications.

Nomaco provides unique sustainable solutions in the NomaGreen line of formulations:

NomaGreen™ is our biodegradable polyethylene formulation. It is not starch-based or bio-based, and it will meet all performance requirements for PE foam regardless of moisture, heat, light or mechanical stress. NomaGreen’s biodegradation process only occurs when the foam is placed in a microbe-rich environment, such as a landfill.  Foam made from this formulation can also be reused and recycled in the standard LDPE stream.

NomaGreen passed testing through a third party, independent laboratory to ensure it meets ASTM D-5511 standards for biodegradability. Results showed that after 120 days in the lab, NomaGreen achieved greater than 40{f716f8da2bc6b8773d14b7ed437079b0125eeaf2794552f16b05c896ce8f16c3} biodegradation.

NomaGreen™ Natural is a bio-based, closed-cell polyethylene foam made from sugar cane, a renewable resource, yet retains the performance characteristics of standard polyethylene foam. With an indefinite shelf-life, NomaGreen Natural will continue protecting your product for multiple uses, and can easily be recycled in the standard LDPE recycling stream.
