Waiakea Water Creates First Fully Degradable Plastic Bottle

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water has announced that it will start using fully degradable bottles for packaging purposes. The new package makes use of TimePlast, the only patented additive for Nano-degradation of plastic, and is also fully recyclable. Waiakea is also going to be the first company to use TimePlast on its already recycled bottles.

According to Ryan Emmons, CEO of Waiakea, making the new bottle meant taking a different approach at polymers. Ryan believes that such an invention has not been possible before since many types of research focused on strengthening and not weakening plastics. However, unlike others who leave the degrading to nature, Waiakea now prefer to chemically degrade their plastics during manufacture, a process that only speeds up the natural degradation process. Ryan Emmons explains that instead of making biodegradable plastic, they transform the plastic polymers into a carbon-based degradable wax.

Waiakea spent over five years and conducted more than 1,200 tests before they developed a bottle that resembled the common ones, and integrating the actual properties of a regular plastic was one of the toughest challenges. Nevertheless, it is understood that the cost of TimePlast additives should not cause worries since one pound is enough to modify a thousand pounds of plastic, a price the industry can absorb.

About Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water

Waiakea Water was founded in 2012, and it focuses on the production of bottled water that has undergone unique processes that have positive effects on its consumers. The water the company packages originate from snowmelt and rain from the active Mauna Loa Volcano, located in Hawaii.

Since establishment, the company has experienced immense growth, going from selling just over 2,000 cases to over 120,000 in only over three years. This increase is all thanks to the local merchants, as well as national suppliers who started distributing the commodity.

Waiakea has also partnered with an organization like Pump Aid, which is dedicated to installing Elephant Pumps and has up to date been able to avail water to over one million individuals. Also, as of 2016, Waiakea stood as the most awarded beverage company in the United States.
