PLA(polylactic acid) is made from corn, cassava and other crops. It can be completely degraded in the soil within one year after disposal, and final products are CO2 and water, not pollute the environment. While the traditional plastic, it may take 200-500years to break down. Here is the picture of PLA cycle process. First we get the starch from crops, then become lactic acid, after that we have resin, we use resin to do products, after disposal, it will become water and carbon dioxide.So we can say, our PLA is from nature, use for nature, and back to nature, 100% biodegradable material, no pollution for the environment.More and more countries begin to ban the plastic products, no plastic will be the trend in the future. Now we have to choose a kind of biodegradable material to develop.We believe, PLA is a good choice for us, let’s work with us together!
In the 1970s, plastic shopping bags were still a rare novelty, and now they have become a ubiquitous global product with an annual output of one trillion. Their footprints are all over the world, including the deepest part of the seabed, the highest peak of Mount Everest and the polar ice caps. Plastics need hundreds of years to degrade. They contain additives that can adsorb heavy metals, antibiotics, pesticides and other toxic substances.Plastic bags pose severe challenges to the environment.How are disposable plastic bags made? How is it banned?How did this happen?In 1933, a chemical plant in Northwich, England inadvertently developed the most commonly used plastic-polyethylene. Although polyethylene was produced on a small scale before, this was the first time that an industrially practical compound material was synthesized, and it was secretly used by the British military during World War II.1965-The integrated polyethylene shopping bag was patented by the Swedish company Celloplast. This plastic bag designed by the engineer Sten Gustaf Thulin soon replaced cloth and paper bags in Europe.1979-Already controlling 80% of the bag market in Europe, plastic bags go abroad and are widely introduced to the United States. Plastic companies begin to aggressively market their product as superior to paper and reusable bags.1982-Safeway and Kroger, two of the biggest supermarket chains in the United States, switch to plastic bags. More stores follow suit and by the end of the decade plastic bags will have almost replaced paper around the world.1997-Sailor and researcher Charles Moore discovers the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the largest of several gyres in the world's oceans where immense amounts of plastic waste have accumulated, threatening marine life. Plastic bags are notorious for killing sea turtles, which mistakenly think they are jellyfish and eat them.2002-Bangladesh is the first country in the world to implement a ban on thin plastic bags, after it was found they played a key role in clogging drainage systems during disastrous flooding. Other countries begin to follow suit.2011-The world consumes 1 million plastic bags every minute.2017-Kenya implemented the most stringent "plastic ban". As a result, more than 20 countries around the world have implemented "plastic restriction orders" or "plastic ban orders" to regulate the use of plastic bags.2018 - "Plastic War Quick Decision" was selected as the theme of World Environment Day, this year it was hosted by India. Companies and governments around the world have expressed their support, and have successively expressed their determination and commitment to solve the problem of single-use plastic pollution.2020- The global "ban on plastics" is on the agenda. Love life and protect the environment. Environmental protection is closely related to our lives and makes us the basis for other things. We should start with small things and start from the side, and achieve the good habit of using as little as possible or not throwing away plastic bags after use to protect our homes!
Breaks down to become part of healthy soil in a home compost pile.DefinitionCompostable materials go a step beyond biodegradable materials by breaking down into natural components and becoming a part of healthy soil. Home compostable materials do not require the high heat (over 136° F) of industrial compost facilities to break down. They can biodegrade in the moderate heat (68-86° F) of home compost piles/bins. The concept of home compostability has come to carry extra weight as many commercial compost facilities are refusing to collect products designed for industrial compost.Tests for compostability measure material disintegration, ensure the tested material has no adverse effects on plant growth, and account for toxicity by setting minimum amounts of heavy metals.Home composting certifications include TUV's OK compost HOME certification in Europe, and AS-5810 Home Compost standardin Australia. In the United States, BPI offers certification but only for industrially compostability.● RecoveryAt the end of a product's life, some materials can be recovered or disposed of to minimize environmental impact. Why choose it?If it can meet your design needs, home compostable packaging is a better choice than industrially compostable packaging because there is a higher likelihood that the material will actually get composted — either at home or at a neighborhood dropoff. The infrastructure is not yet in place in most US cities to properly process industrially compostable materials. Some cities have local drop-off or compost pick-up services to meet the needs of cities that do not offer curbside compost collection. The purpose of composting is to return nutrients to soil and limit the amount of greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere as materials degrade in landfills. Compostable packaging is not nutrient-rich in the way that nitrogen-packed food waste or lawn trimmings are. Compostable packaging offers carbon to compost, which is a much smaller proportion. However, compostable packaging can be particularly effective when designed in tandem with products that inherently return nutrients to the soil (i.e. containers for food waste or poly bags that double as food scrap bags) Home compostable materials are also industrially compostable, though not all facilities accept compostable plastics.
Manufacturers always put a priority on the raw material sourcing, which makes stable product quality possible for years. The raw materials used for the manufacturing of biodegradable resin should be in strict line with the industry standards both in domestic and foreign countries. The performance of the materials will be even premier than the standard requirement so as to meet the certification requirements. Moreover, the manufacturers will follow the market trend to update their material lists rapidly. Customers will be informed through product descriptions about the composition. As a large-scaled company, XCBIO Biodegradable Products Co., Ltd mainly specializes in biodegradable products. XCBIO Biodegradable Products provides a wide range of biodegradable products for customers. The offered product is equipped with a long service life and has reliable functions.
