Solutions for a healthier,
Smart Technology for Eco-Friendly Plastics
SAWeco Company advocates REUSE, RECYCLE, REDUCE and eventual REMOVAL of plastic waste when using plastic to save the environment - through more use of recycled resins and biodegradable additive technology in the manufacture of plastic product and packaging.
Our Biodegradable Additive technology focuses on landfill biodegradation as up to 90% of plastic waste ends in landfill in many countries despite recycling programs and use of bio-based plastic such as PLA.
Our tested and proven technology works in most petroleum based plastic PE, PP, PS, PET, BOPP and more. Treated packaging with our additive is not sensitive to UV rays, sunlight and ambient heat. It has highly stable shelf and service life so no special inventory or shipping storage required. No fear of premature degradation.
Treated packaging retains all the normal properties except it biodegrades both aerobic and anaerobically to natural gases, moisture and biomass when in high microbial activity environment such as landfill and composting facilities.
Our Biodegradable Additive technology is neither OXO additive nor bio-based plastic technology.
Plastic takes decades or centuries to self-biodegrade or destroy. Without accelerated biodegradation, untreated packaging will continue to pile up subsequently contributing to pollution, limiting space and forcing need to build more landfills.
Act NOW and save our environment as we grow our business.
SAWeco builds its reputation through the years by being resourceful in the plastic industry and fostering trust and strong partnerships with customers, suppliers and manufacturers. We work with technology developers and manufacturers to offer products that are better for the environment and future generation.
We want to make all plastic packaging biodegradable before they are used, reused and eventually disposed.
Few Good Reads

Supermarkets, retailers, food eateries, offices are using our technology for highly stable, food safe and environmentally safe plastic packaging, bottles and bags.
Why is Plastic problematic?
December 10 2017
Plastic as we know it has only really existed for the last 60-70 years, but in that time it has transformed everything from clothing, cooking and catering, to product design, engineering and retailing.
One of the great advantages of many types of plastic is that they're designed to last - for a very long time.
And nearly all the plastic ever created still exists in some form today.
13 Mind-Blowing Images of Landfills Around the World Show the True Cost of Our Waste

Every year, the world produces more than two billion tons of waste — enough to fill a fleet of trash trucks to circle the world 24 times, according to sustainability project the World Counts.
The World Bank estimates the yearly global cost of dealing with waste is more than $200 billion and predicts annual waste will exceed 11 million tons per day by 2100 if current trends continue.
