The inventors of the world’s first disposable nitrile glove, N-DEX®,
now bring you the world’s first biodegradable disposable nitrile glove,
GREEN-DEX™. Showa Best Glove’s Research & Development reaches
a major breakthrough with ECO BEST TECHNOLOGY™ (EBT).
EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills
and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent certified laboratories
using internationally recognized test methods. EBT is composed of organic
materials designed to make GREEN-DEX™ attractive to microbial activity.
These microorganisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete enzymes
that depolymerize the nitrile. The final result is biogases and inert humus.
