Dzolv Products Pty Ltd began its evolution ten years ago when owner Mark Charman identified the need for radical change in the packaging industry with a swing away from conventional plastics. Dzolv Products now believes that it has finally found the biodegradable product base it has been looking for in Poly Lactic Acid (PLA). PLA is derived from corn which is an annually renewable resource. Through its alliance with global partner Minima Technology, and help from Natureworks LLC and Mitsubishi Chemicals, Dzolv Products now has access to a broad range of packaging products including cold drinking cups, salad bowls, sushi trays, meat and vegetable trays, soufflé cups, egg cartons wine cups, hot coffee cups and lids. Also available are PLA coated paper products such as milkshake cups, hot chip cups, plates, hamburger clams and partitioned take-a-way food trays.
Dzolv Products Pty Ltd has now launched its own brand to cover these products The “EFGLO” brand which is an acronym for “Environmentally Friendly Greener Living Options” has been well received by the market. A range of biodegradable and compostable shopping bags, boutique bags, netting bags, clear bags and dog poo bags are also available to suit dedicated market areas. A range of biodegradable and compostable stationary products such as display folders, document folders and pens are also available.
All products are certified under the OK Compost certification, and comply to the Green PLA, Biodegradable Products Institute, EN 13432 and ASTM 6400-99 and AS4736-2006. We also have our own brand of cleaning products under the Dirt Flirt label. PLA can be injection moulded, blow moulded, extruded. Whilst it is good to reduce, reuse, and recycle, the use of this technology has the potential to divert everyday waste products away from landfill sites and redirect it to industrial compost facilities.
