Our Commitment to the Environment
Alkame’s bottles are manufacture using the leading innovative technology in plastics. The use of this technology greatly enhances the plastics ability to be reintroduced into the environment, and is truly addressing the end of our bottles life by allowing our plastic bottles to return to nature.
Did You Know?
- 827,000 to 1.3 million tons of plastic PET water bottles are produced each year. 76.5 percent of these bottles end up in landfills…NOT ALKAME’S BOTTLES
- 26 to 41 percent of the 2.4 million tons of PET plastic discarded every year is bottled water bottles…NOT ALKAME’S BOTTLES
- Because plastic water bottles are shielded from sunlight in landfills, they will not decompose for thousands of years…NOT ALKAME’S BOTTLES
Alkame Bottles are 100% recyclable and BPA Free.
What Makes It Different
Alkame bottles are far less harmful to the environment than other water bottles
Alkame utilizes an additive that enhances our bottles ability to breakdown the polymers chains, enhancing both oxidation and biodegradability. This two-step process reduces the molecular weight by introducing oxygen into the structure, transforming the polymer into much smaller lengths. By reducing the length of the polymer the material loses its physical strength and elongation properties. The biodegradability aspect refers to the conversion of these lower molecular weight by bacteria into biomass, in aerobic and anaerobic environments. The use of this technology by Alkame makes them far less harmful to the environment.
The Plastic in Alkame was developed as a unique way to enhance the biodegradation of PET water bottles .
Our polymer has been altered into materials which are both available for biodigestion and are biodegradable. Suitable environments rich in bacteria can now be safely biodegraded into the environment.
