Benefits of Bio

Biodegradable bioplastics is a biodegradable plastic with microorganisms and bacteria in natural. (Bio compostable) Which can produce from raw materials that can be renewable production in natural (Renewable Source) such as sugarcane, cassava, protein of beans and corn. The origin of the raw materials from nature. Properties of use that similar to plastic from the traditional petrochemical and biological degradable plastics will returned to the nature 100%. Therefore, the bioplastics is the way to develop of material for use to protect the environment.

Bioplastics is the plastic produced from agricultural raw materials or from natural (Biobase) which can be planted and renewable substitutes by using a short time (Renewable resource) such as corn, sugarcane and cassava with the property that can be degradable and non-degradable in the biological Biodegradable plastic is?

Plastic is degraded in nature for the last step will be digested by microbes until to become carbon dioxide, water and biomass under the appropriate temperature and humidity such as

relative humidity 50-60%, temperature 50-60°C, and microorganisms in nature or through the biological fermentation process within a period not exceeding 180 days. The result will without part of the plastic and toxic remains.

Oxo-Degradable Plastics

Oxo-Degradable Plastics is often referred to as “degradable” plastic, since it does not require a biological process to degrade. At present, there are some producers and consumers understand that Oxo-Degradable Plastics to be similar Compostable plastics (Biodegradable bioplastics). But in fact Oxo-Degradable Plastics just broken into small pieces and still have parts of residues in the environment which does not pass international standards N13432 or ISO17088.

Oxo-Degradable Plastics is manufacture of plastic general, Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS) or others.   Blended with chemical additives which may be contain heavy metals such as cobalt, manganese and metal. These additives as a result to broken into small pieces. Non-degradable in the biological became to micro plastic that contaminated in air and water or may be contaminated in the human food chain  because of small size and difficult to filter out of the food chain. Oxo-Degradabl Plastic is adding substances that reduce the quality and stability of plastic. So, can not be reused again (Recycle).

Styrofoam : time to degrade 1000 years

Produce from Polystyrene. (There are cancer-causing substances)

Plastic : time to degrade 450 years

Produce from petroleum. (Nonenewable Resources)

Bio-Eco : time to degrade 6 months

Produce from natural plants such as sugarcane, corn and cassava. (Renewable Natural Resources)

General plastic

PS (Styrofoam Food Container)

PP (Plastic Food Container)

PE (Plastic Food Container and Plastic Bag)

PET (Plastic Bottle)

Bioplastics

PBS (Paper Packaging : Coating-Bioplastic)

PLA (Bioplastic Packaging)

PBAT (Bioplastic Bag)

Bioplastic that acquired can bring to used to produce the goods which similar to general plastic that we used in everyday such as spoons, bowls, pens, glasses, cups, boxes, cards and bags. All this can be degrade when buried underground.
