EPI chairman and chief executive Joseph Gho said this week: “EPI looks forward to the opportunities for information sharing that the AHPI Symposium presents.

EPI, with headquarters in Vancouver, Canada, pioneered oxo-biodegradable technology which enables the manufacture of environmentally responsible plastics that degrade after use. EPI’s Totally Degradable Plastic Additives (TDPA™) are incorporated in conventional plastics on standard manufacturing machines to make single use plastic products degradable, without affecting the quality of the product itself. Products made with TDPA™ can now be found in more than 50 countries. With a primary focus on waste management and single use plastic products, EPI aims to meet its customers’ requirements through excellence in innovation, responsiveness and global capability.
