Making environmental products

Synonyms:
Producing ecological goods
Developing sustainable products
Counter Claim:
"Van Leer's Vatenfabriek", in Amstelveen, the Netherlands bought an invention to make plastics biodegradable to a certain degree. They could not sell the plastic made with it, because no utiliser wanted to pay the extra cost (process cost plus invention cost). Producers have no interest to purchase ecological products if they are un-competitive to market alternatives, or if they cannot pass the costs directly onto the consumer.
