Ampacet Corp. has introduced the additive masterbatch, Ampacet 101787, which, according to the company, removes taste- and odor-causing molecules in low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear LDPE and ethylene vinyl acetate films.

The active ingredient reportedly is highly porous and preferentially adsorbs smaller, odor-causing molecules. Since it is moderately hydrophobic, it readily removes organic and inorganic compounds in the presence of water.
