  • Additive – infused EPS to help the material break down in a landfill in under 4 years*
  • Breaks down into inert humus, CO2, and methane in a landfill*
  • NOT an oxo-biodegradable material, won’t leave behind microplastics
  • Activated by a microbe-rich environment, means no change to shelf life or storage requirements
  • Thermal and material properties equivalent to EPS^
  • Uses the same processes and equipment as our traditional EPS, providing the same tolerances and quality specifications you’ve come to expect from Lifoam
  • Meets FDA 21 CFR standards for food contact
  • Not available for consumer sale or resale in CA, MD and WA.

*Bio-reactive landfill environment, ASTM D5511, test results showed biodegradation of 91.9% of the sample over four years.
^Drop testing in accordance with ASTM D4169-16, Schedule A, Assurance Level 1


Yes, the performance of EVG is the same as EPS in thermal and physical testing.

Testing has been conducted at an independent test lab to ASTM standard D5511 to support this claim.

Yes, municipalities are increasingly choosing these types of landfills to generate electricity and save space. These landfills are defined by the EPA as being a municipal solid waste landfill in which liquids and air are added to help bacteria break down the waste. Oftentimes, the methane byproduct is captured and used for electricity.

No, this additive does not contain any metals, starches, or hard salts – which are often found in products that create microplastics. In addition, this is not an oxo-degradable material, which is currently debated in the scientific world about whether oxo-degradation results in microplastics.

More than standard EPS, but not enough to blow up your packaging budget. Send us an email and we’ll help you start your upgrade today.


Payload – Qty 1 100ml vial, no gel, no corepack
Note that the testing was done with a 8x6x7 container of each in our internal, ISTA certified labs.
