Creating a Strong and Weak Bottle, a Dilemma
Waiakea founder, CEO Ryan Emmons shares that it was not easy to come up with the product since the scientists had to handle polymers with different beliefs in the potential of the idea. The new production will see the production of bottles added with additives which will speed up the process of breaking the chemical bonds in the containers.
The Cost is Insignificant
Waiakea bottles make use of quality RPET, tough it costs double the ordinary price for RPET. The cost however for the TimePlasts is low. The substance is added to the plastic material during the manufacturing process.
According to Emmons, these considerations make translates to an extremely low production costs. To make it even better, the bottles can be recycled.
