“OXO plastics are designed so that they will not degrade deep in landfill and they will not therefore generate methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) in anaerobic conditions.“ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxo_Biodegradable This article also explains that the plastics don’t degrade immediately, which I assume rules them out for farming.

My understanding is that cultivated soil is aerobic. Indeed the air is essential for plant growth. Only compacted soils would approach an anaerobic state. However, ploughing in decaying sheeting which will absorb air and in the early stages affect drainage would not seem sensible. Land-fill on the other hand should allow the treated plastics to decay, albeit taking longer than if openly exposed to the atmosphere.

That wouldn't work - as far as I understand it, the additive breaks down the plastic aerobically - if the sheeting is ploughed in it won't break down effectively. This is the same reason why the tech isn't any good for plastic that ends up in landfill and needs to be done in conjunction with a deposit scheme. Again I am no expert, happy for others to correct me if I am wrong.

"Symphony are currently explaining the technology in detail to DEFRA and the Treasury." would be nice if all the arable crop plastic sheeting you see on farmlands were oxo-biodegradable. Just churn it back into the land. makes a lot of sense.. makes no sense it doesn't use our tech already??

Lobby pressure keeps building for broader adoption of their technology & the company is front & centre promoting it

Remember the most recent Share price target set by the company broker Cantors, which used factual (historical) earnings and revenue came up at 21p. We've had an almighty whoosh of global sentiment and awareness. So personally I see 21p as a safe floor to pick bits up.. AGM in May I think.. you'd like to think the rhetoric and demand would be sufficient to see us back to 25p+ Just my trading intuition!

RESULTS OF YOUGOV SURVEY Wed 18 Apr 2018 07:00 RNS Number : 2401L Symphony Environmental Tech. PLC 18 April 2018 18 April 2018 SYMPHONY ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES PLC ("Symphony" or "the Company") Results of YouGov survey presented at a seminar in London opened by Chris Packham Symphony Environmental Technologies Plc (AIM: SYM), a global specialist in products and technologies that "make plastic smarter", is delighted to announce the results of a YouGov Survey commissioned by the Company. The survey was designed to measure the public's awareness, knowledge and desire to take action against plastic pollution which is now a worldwide problem especially in the oceans as recently highlighted in the David Attenborough programme 'Blue Planet'. YouGov surveyed a representative sample of 2,107 people across the United Kingdom. The results were as follows: · 86% of UK adults would be happy to use oxo-biodegradable plastic instead of their usual plastic · 90% of UK adults would support treating everyday plastic items (e.g. shopping bags, plastic packaging etc.) with oxo-biodegradable technology. · 88% would support the UK government legislating to make the use of oxo-biodegradable plastics a legal requirement, as other governments have done. A full copy of the YouGov survey is available on the Company's website at: www.symphonyenvironmental.com This YouGov report coincided with a seminar arranged by Symphony to raise awareness of oxo-biodegradable technology which, unlike ordinary plastic, will degrade and biodegrade if it gets into the open environment as litter, and also the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, London 2018, where the heads of businesses from Commonwealth countries are discussing issues facing their countries in 2018 and beyond including plastic litter which is a global problem. Chris Packham, Presenter of BBC's Autumnwatch, and passionate environmentalist was guest speaker at the Symphony seminar, along with Michael Laurier, Michael Stephen, Professor Telmo Ojeda and Alston Koch. Chris talked about the danger that plastic litter poses to wildlife and his belief that new technologies like Symphony's d2w oxo-biodegradable plastic are a valuable asset in the fight against plastic litter in the open environment and should be supported by the UK government right now. A fact that he reiterated to Michael Gove on The One Show on 16 April 2018, in response to the announcement that the UK Government had set-aside £61.4 million to fight plastic pollution. In addition to the above, Michael Laurier, CEO of Symphony presented at a forum at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting on 17 April 2017 discussing how smarter plastics can impact in the battle against plastic pollution. Michael Laurier, CEO of Symphony, commented: "The results of this survey show the public are overwhelming in favour of taking positive action to reduce the amount of plastic litter in the open environment, and believe that the Government needs to take decisive action and legislate for oxo-bio plastic technology. This will ensure that if plastic bags or packaging do escape collection and end up in the open environment as litter, they will degrade and biodegrade in the same ways as a leaf, only quicker, without leaving microplastics behind."

Problem is SYM have a working product now but investors maybe concerned it has a limited shelf life if/when this new plastic eating bug is commercialised.

Is it a tree shake? What made this share worth 27p to buy a week ago and values it at 21p this morning?

A University group is reported to have discovered a way of decomposing plastic. Today’s fall is an overreaction to to an unproven technology years from commercialisation. Time to buy the dip here at some point.

I don't post on here very often but I support ML as he has remained true to his ambition to rid the planet of plastic waste.

Would be nice to think that SYM were involved in this. https://intu.co.uk/traffordcentre/events/sciencex-returns-to-intu-trafford-centre Life of water When: 10am - 9pm We all know water is essential for life but humans are polluting our oceans. Put your knowledge to the test and help to save the oceans and sea life from the devastating effects of plastic pollution.
