Rhodia DE-Tow™: faster degradation - less environmental pollution
Rhodia DE-Tow™ is a more environmentally friendly cellulose acetate filter tow. Degrading 5-10 times faster than standard filter tow, this is a major technological and environmental response to the issue of filter butt pollution.
Faster filter degradation
DE-Tow relies on natural processes to reduce degradation time. By adding enhanced photodegradation to the intrinsic biodegradation, this innovative and unique product will decompose in 1-2 years, compared to up to 10 years for a standard cellulose acetate filter tow.
