This is both an environmental issue as well as an energy issue

NTI is a double edged sword in this fight, as they have a plastic replacement that is 100% biodegradable AND they have a unique patented process to convert plastic waste to CRUDE OIL

1)Plastic Waste to Crude Oil

Read about this technology

Polymer Energy™ can turn this plastic waste into useable energy

"Polymer Energy(TM) (waste-plastic to oil conversion) machines, which we have just launched in India and Thailand."

Thailand said crude oil imports could be cut by 12% (Thailand article) .
India (India article)

What type of plastic wastes can the Polymer Energy™ system process?

The Polymer Energy™ system is designed to primarily process polyolefins i.e. polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP). The plastic waste is typically of the following types
- Disposable sacks and shopping bags,
- Packaging used for cleansers, cleaning products and cosmetics,
- Plastic parts of household appliances, computers and office equipment
- Plastic containers, tanks, parts of piping and insulation of cables

2) Biodegradable Products

Unlike the competing plastic products claiming to be 'degradable' or 'oxo-degradable' that only break down into smaller plastic fragments, Natur-Tec products will completely biodegrade within 180 days in accordance with the ASTM D6400 standard for compostable plastics and are certified 100 percent biodegradable and compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute.

Biodegradable bags at "significantly lower" cost and better perfromance properties - From last 10-k

Patents and
trade secrets allow NTIC to produce biodegradable (compostable) plastic products
with better performance properties in comparison to competitive products
currently available in the market, and at a significantly lower price. NTIC's
products include totally biodegradable compost bags, agricultural film and other
products intended for single-use disposable packaging applications.

Natur-Tec™ polymer resins are engineered for high performance, ease of processing and reduced cost, and can be easily processed
by converters using conventional manufacturing processes and equipment.

By using Natur-Tec products as an alternative to conventional plastics, industry and consumers are able to reduce their carbon footprint and move towards a zero carbon or carbon neutral footprint.

MBLX which has a market cap of approximately 255 million, is working to develop alternatives to petrochemical-based plastics, chemicals, and energy. NTI market cap is approximately 55 million and they have proven product that just completed test sales.

Welcome to, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
