Symphony Environmental has officially opened its lab in the UK during the company’s international distributors’ conference.

The facilities in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire will be used to increase capabilities in molecular spectroscopy (which analyses the elemental contents of plastic).

They will also run artificial ageing tests which calculate the effects of sunlight and heat on degradation and to produce trial samples of additive to ensure consistency of quality, especially for the work for special applications.

It will help with research into ‘smart’ plastics across controlled-life technology which converts plastic into a biodegradable material, healthcare plastics (using anti-microbial/ bacterial and anti-mosquito/insecticide additives) and anti-counterfeiting systems to protect branded packaging.
