biodegrade plastic


Biodegradable plastics is adding some additives in the production process (such as starch, modified starch, cellulose or other photosensitizer, biological degradation agent), the stability decreases, more easily degraded in the natural environment of plastics.

Tests show that most biodegradable plastics are exposed to the general environment for 3 months. They begin to become thinner, lose weight, decrease strength, and gradually break into fragments. If these fragments are buried in garbage or soil, the degradation is not obvious.

Biodegradable plastics are generally divided into four broad categories:

Light Biodegradable plastics

The photosensitizer is added to the plastics, and the plastics are decomposed gradually under the sunshine. It belongs to an earlier generation of degradable plastics. Its disadvantage is that the degradation time is difficult to predict because of the sunshine and climate change. Therefore, it is impossible to control the degradation time.

Biodegradable plastics

A plastic that breaks down into low molecular compounds under the action of microorganisms. The utility model has the advantages of convenient storage and transportation, as long as the utility model has the advantages of dry drying, no need of avoiding light and wide application range, and not only can be used for agricultural film and packaging bags, but also can be widely used in the medical field. With the development of modern biological technology, biodegradable plastics have been paid more and more attention and become a new hot spot of research and development.

biodegrade plastic products 1.jpgPHA degradable plastics are the most excellent biodegradable plastics. At the same time, because of their high cost and complex production process, they are still in the initial stage of the market. In 2010, the world's PHA production capacity of less than 80 thousand tons, while the U.S. Metabolix company has about 50 thousand tons of capacity, accounting for more than 60% of the market. Chinese enterprises in the production process and the development of PHA also go well, Tianjin Coinfamily biological material Co. Ltd. has 10 thousand tons of PHA capacity, Ningbo Tian has 2000 tons of production capacity, the Shenzhen Bureau of biological science and technology limited company has production capacity of 5000 tons. The Japanese Kaneka company, PHBIndustrial company is a typical representative of the Brazil PHA industry, these companies are the PHA promoter of the industry, although the application of PHA is limited, leading to the actual sales of Metabolix per year is not more than 100 tons, but with the gradual development of future downstream applications, especially in the film packaging, plastic sheeting, edible tableware further, the mature non-woven industry application, PHA market has great potential.

Light / biodegradable plastics

A class of plastics that combines light and microorganisms and has the characteristics of light and microbial degradation of plastics.

Water degradable plastics

Adding water absorbent material in plastic, when used up, it can be dissolved in water. It is mainly used in medical and sanitary equipment (such as medical gloves), so it is easy to destroy and disinfect.

Our products advantages :


Practical: it has similar or similar application performance and sanitary property with the same kind of common plastic.

The degradation of in use, in the natural environment and  rapid degradation, become susceptible to environment by debris or  detritus eventually return to nature.

Safety: the substances produced and degraded in the degradation process are harmless or harmless to the environment.

Economy: the price is equal to or slightly higher than that of the same kind of common plastic.
