Cerdia® DE-Tow: Speeding up Biodegradation
The growing request for a faster biodegradable filter material makes Cerdia® DE-Tow the tow of the future. It permits the production of faster biodegradable cigarette filters and makes a valuable contribution to protecting the environment from litter.
Like standard filter tow, our Cerdia® DE-Tow is made of biobased (in itself biodegradable) cellulose acetate – but it is titanium dioxide free. We achieve enhanced biodegradability by incorporating a food grade additive within the fibers’ matrix that supports the essential microbial activity.
Superior Biodegradability: The key feature of Cerdia® DE-Tow
The fast biodegradability of Cerdia® DE-Tow has been externally approved, repeatedly verified and officially certified by independent labs and certification bodies such as TÜV Austria.
Perfect Performance: Processing Cerdia® DE-Tow
The processability, filter design options, filter rod parameters and smoke chemistry are equivalent to standard tow. This makes processing Cerdia® DE-Tow particularly easy and reliable for our customers – no additional equipment or changes at rod makers required!
