Eco-Eme-Bag

Eco-Friendly Emesis Containment System

Centurion is proud to offer the environmentally-friendly Eco-Eme-Bag™, made with a specially formulated additive that accelerates the breakdown of polypropylene and polyethylene.

This unique technology uses microbes to facilitate the breakdown of plastics. The Eco-Eme-Bag was shown to biodegrade to the extent of 35-40% in 10 months under simulated landfill conditions.*

 

 

*Testing performed in accordance with ASTM D5511-11. Rates in actual landfills may be slower.
