In large parts of the world, & often in the U.K. & EU, plastic packaging is simply dropped from hand & left to blow about the place ... anyone that has travelled to Middle East, India, China etc will have witnessed this .. there is negligible or zero recycling of plastics. The stuff just blows about & collects in places before it finally washes into water courses. In many counties that can take years before it occurs. Surely better that it biodegrades first as a result of SYM's additive?The company is not offering up the 'Ultimate' solution .. that would be a global ban on plastics .. they are simply offering a valid solution to help address the fact that the world, humanity and our way of dealing with one-time use plastics, is very imperfect.

Yep, news mirrors the written article. There was a little more balance/presentation of their work abroad but the defense to the tests conducted by the UK university is a bit shakey. It performs better than non biodegradable plastic... this is obvious no?

Very negative reporting.on the 10 o'clock news this evening suggesting d2w may be band due to its length of time to degrade and then the polution caused by its break up taking so long.Not a good omen seriously consider your position relating to your holding in this company a tough time ahead is on the cards

The piece closes with the stats that 500 billion bags per year are made but, only 1-3% get recycled. That is a helluva lot of plastic bags that persist in the environment & a very large % of those will persist in the presence of oxygen, before reaching the oceans.. likely the vast majority. SYM's technology causes a % of those to disintegrate before they enter the oceans .... how can that be a 'worse' result than not using the additive in the first place? I don't see a global ban on plastic bags / plastic wrappings any time soon .. there is no current cost-effective alternative, when considering the functionality of plastic.Let's see the company response

Disastrous as far as publicity goes. Will have to rewatch the BeeB 10 o'clock news as I spent most of my time hiding behind the sofa during the report. I fear a seriously grim day tomorrow.... https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-44888185

Neil, is that your measure of success? Whether another company tries to buy you out?I am an Investor in the company, whereas, as long term readers of this thread know, you have a very personal axe to grind against SYM management . Your view is so biased, your psyche so anchored in the past, that it will never change .. even if the share was trading at £5, you would still be bitter about the past. I cannot take your comments seriously because you will only be, transitorily, happy if the company were to fail. That is not a start-point from which you are capable of reasoned debate here. Move on, for goodness sake. Life is too short to harbour this grudge you have.

Well that was some publicity on the BBC 10pm news tonight. Whatever happened to those tyre recycling machines that they were involved with years ago.

Mattjos, Rather than resort to ad hominem attacks have a stab at answering the question. If d2w is such a great product & going to do so much to solve the world's plastic problems why hasn't any other company shown the slightest inclination to get involved, copy it or buy tiny little SYM out?

d2w doesn't work, has never worked & will never work. The only people who say it works are SYM or their bogus PR front, the OPA. If it did work SYM would have years of huge sales of the stuff & be a hugely successful company instead of the tiny lifestyle company it clearly is.

If you consider the main areas for their revenue ie. outside the U.K. & EU & then consider the waste streams in those countries, I believe SYM's technology is entirely valid. No doubt the debate will go on in Europe but, Europe is not the world .. far from it.Whilst most only associate the company with oxy-biodegrade plastic bags, the reality is they have broadened their product range over last 10 years into other areas. You need to consider their total revenue mix.I am not suggesting this article is good news for them but, I am sure the company will quickly give a robust, evidence-based, defence & would be surprised if it affects revs for them.

Didn't look good at all for SYM. This ain't the solution to the plastics crisis that's for sure. Chris Packham came out of the piece looking a bit of a chump.. (though I'm a big fan in pretty much every other aspect of what he does).

Fair enough Mattjos. However, public perception is quite important with the whole plastic debate and really it's the issue with plastics in the oceans which has caught fire. My personal view is that retailers are much more likely to focus on recycling than on pushing bags that don't really degrade naturally in the sea. Might be hard for them to explain to customers?

Hydrus, the European Agri lobbyists are extremely active pushing a crop-starch based, plastic alternative. They have a vested interest in that land used to grow the feedstock for this will reduce land available for foodstuffs and therefore likely increase the price for food crops. This is an ongoing battle as many within the protectionist EU.Symphony's product requires oxygen to activate its destruction.I don't doubt that if you take one of their bags and keep it underwater, deprived of oxygen, it will not decline as stated.Please ask yourself: How many plastic bags will journey from shop issuance to the ocean, as a consequence of littering or inadequate waste collection, in the absence of oxygen?

Mattjos I can't see any posts by the person you refer to.Do you have any views on the BBC article about SYM? I don't know the company like you do but it certainly made me question their technology.

I see the bitter & twisted neilrr is back appearing on the thread, no doubt motivated by the price rise.This is a poster who is only ever happy if the share price declines, irrespective of anything else. He has a very personal & long standing, butter grudge against company management so, please, do all bear that in mind when reading whatever he is spouting this time around.

SYM have got this wonderful world saving d2w product they make which is not protected by a single patent. A question for the bulls & newbie greenies. If d2w is such a great product & going to do so much to solve the world's plastic problems why hasn't any other company shown the slightest inclination to get involved, copy it or buy tiny little SYM out?

'But Richard Thompson, a professor of marine biology at Plymouth University, is sceptical. He has buried Oxo bags underground and suspended them in sea and monitored the results.He showed a BBC team a d2w bag made by Symphony that he said had been under water in Plymouth harbour for more than two years."It's probably still strong enough to carry your shopping home in it," he said'Blimey that doesn't sound great
