At EnviroBid℠ we offer organic feedstock as well as biobased and recycled raw material options to reduce your carbon footprint and overall environmental impact. As the consumer consumption continues to grow, finding environmentally sound solutions for raw materials is paramount. As an example, across the globe only 9% of plastics are successfully recycled into new material. What is happening with the rest of our waste? By utilizing post-consumer materials such as plastics, glass, composites or rubber in your products, you can reduce your carbon footprint and overall environmental impact.
Organic feedstocks are unprocessed raw materials that can be added to, or transformed into a desired finished product. In many cases organic feedstocks are traditionally considered to be waste products, however utilizing these raw materials can reduce various waste streams from going to landfills, reduce carbon emissions, and utilize energy sources like natural fibers or starches that may have been otherwise wasted.
A biobased material is a material intentionally made from substances derived from living (or once-living) organisms. This can include plant, forestry, animal and marine based materials. Strictly, the definition could include many common materials such as wood and leather, but it typically refers to modern materials that have undergone more extensive processing. At EnviroBid℠, we are here to help your company navigate and determine which raw material is best suited for your product needs and life cycle.
At EnviroBid℠ we believe there is intrinsic value in buying sustainable raw materials. Growing environmental concern from consumers is driving the trend to reduce the commercial carbon footprint on the Earth. To reduce CO2 emissions and meet the demands of the consumer market, the origin of commercial products must be addressed.
Re-inventing and modifying the way products are manufactured and sourced will help to make consumers day-to-day lives more sustainable. Some may see this as an insurmountable challenge, but at EnviroBid℠ we see the opportunity for success.

Additives can be incorporated into products for a variety of functions. We offer three categories of additives. They are offsets, material enhancers, and antimicrobial additives. Offset additives, when incorporated into a product; reduce your base material usage while reducing costs. These high quality additives also help reduce carbon emissions as they often cut down on fossil based material usage. At EnviroBid℠ we offer traditional and natural offset materials. Natural offset additives are derived from biological or renewable resources and are made from materials traditionally seen as waste streams.
Material enhancing additives can serve a multitude of performance enhancement purposes for a final product. The ranges of additives offered vary from aiding in the degradation of final products to the safety, fragrance, strength, flexibility or performance of a finished product.
Antimicrobial additives protect consumers from unwanted microorganisms that can cause illness, unpleasant odors, discoloration and deterioration. At EnviroBid℠ we offer antimicrobial additives which can be applied to coatings as well as in the makeup of your finished product.

By Diya Zhu: Symposium Coordinator for the GCI Electrophilic bromination is a common type of reaction in undergraduate organic laboratories. In these experiments, we rarely use Br2 as a bromine source. Why? This dense brownish-red liquid is a pain in the butt for a few reasons. First of all, it fumes. Once you open the bottle, […]
By Karlee Bamford, Treasurer for the GCI The attention of international media has been captured by the remarkable success in CO2sequestration achieved by the Canadian company Carbon Engineering, located in Squamish, British Columbia. Sustainability-related, world-saving initiatives often have an easier sell in the media than, say, incremental advances reported by researchers on equally sustainable academic […]
By Alana Rangaswamy (Vice-President, Dalhousie University Green Chemistry Initiative) The iconic Halifax Ferry is one of many boats to traverse the Harbour every day. One great part of attending Dalhousie University is living steps away from the ocean. Much of Halifax’s history and development is due to its access to water, both as a naval base and […]
