In an effort to resolve the environmental problem, additives have been combined in certain ways with the polymeric compositions used to make plastics to increase the rate at which the plastic is degraded to environmentally friendly compounds. These additives, commonly called degradants, increase the rate of degradation of the plastic by increasing the rate of photodegradation, biological degradation, and/or chemical degradation.

The process of working with different additive formula is detrimental to the quality of the final polymer blend itself, since each event of heating and melting a polymer adds to the heat history of the polymer.

The one or more degradants are often added to virgin polymer compositions by melting pellets or powder of the virgin polymer and adding the degradants to the melted polymer, mixing the degradants and polymer in an extruder to disperse the degradants within the polymer, and extruding the mixture into pellets or other useable form of the polymer. Typically the degradants are added in an amount of about 0.5 to 2 percent based on the weight of the polymer. The resulting extruded polymer containing the degradants is then used in latter manufacturing operations such as, extrusion, film blowing, or molding to produce a final article. The process of melting the polymer to add the degradants, however, is expensive. For example, the remelting step includes the high energy costs associated with providing sufficient heat to remelt the polymer and the manpower costs to perform the remelting step. Moreover, the process is detrimental to the quality of the final polymer blend itself, since each event of heating and melting a polymer adds to the heat history of the polymer and tends to result in some degradation of the polymer.
