Biodegradable Plastic Containers to Food, Beverage and Pharma Industries

Apr 05 2010

Casey Container (USA) has acquired the licensing rights to incorporate EcoPure™ biodegradable additive into the manufacture of plastic containers for use in the food, beverage and pharma packaging industries. Effective immediately, Casey Container Corp. has begun trading under the symbol (OTCBB: CSEY).

Utilizing the new FDA-approved EcoPure™ technology, Casey Container (www.caseycontainer.com) plans to produce custom plastic container products that utilize standard polymers such as PET for strength, shelf-life, appearance and longevity, but have the added advantage of being 100 percent biodegradable in both compost and landfill environments, where the material is consumed by microbial activity in 2 to 5 years.

These containers will also be 100 percent recyclable and can therefore be mixed into the standard PET recycling stream. Other types of biodegradable bottles, such as Oxo-degradable or PLA (corn based) plastics, cannot be recycled with traditional plastics.

At launch, Casey Container will primarily serve food, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies that are eco-conscious and understand the competitive advantage biodegradable plastic packaging offers in today’s marketplace. The Company plans to open its first manufacturing plant in the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla. area to serve a growing list of customers with expressed interest in implementing a 100 percent biodegradable plastic packaging solution.
