Is PLA material fully 100% biodegradable???

Affected by the global “Plastic Restriction” and “Plastic Ban” laws, some parts of the world have begun to impose large-scale plastic restrictions and domestic plastic ban policies have been gradually implemented. The demand for fully degradable plastics continues to grow. PLA fully degradable plastic has outstanding advantages compared with other degradable plastics, and has gradually become popular.

What is PLA material?

PLA polylactic acid, also known as polylactide, refers to a polyester polymer obtained by polymerizing lactic acid as the main raw material. It is usually made from starch proposed by renewable plant resources (such as corn, cassava, etc.). It is a new type of renewable biodegradable material.

Why is PLA material 100% biodegradable?

PLA is a renewable plant resource, which has good biodegradability and can be completely degraded by microorganisms in nature after use.
Polylactic acid is an aliphatic hydroxy acid polymer, which is a hard material in a glass state at room temperature, and is converted into carbon dioxide, CH4 and water under the decomposition of microorganisms. It is a typical linear fully biodegradable material.

What are the benefits of using PLA material?

PLA tableware can be 100% decomposed into carbon dioxide and water in nature, solving the problem of white pollution from the root, protecting the environment and achieving sustainable development.

At present, the common disposable lunch boxes such as take-out boxes, restaurant boxes, and supermarket food boxes are mostly made of petroleum-based materials, and the production process will contain more additives, which may cause cancer in the human body. Choosing PLA material is good for your health.

Urgent environmental status and policies: According to incomplete statistics, the world’s carbon dioxide emissions are reported to rise to 60°C in 2030. This is a terrible data. The World Environmental Protection Organization is also vigorously urging its members to pay attention to the environment. Therefore, it is an inevitable trend to replace disposable plastics with reusable polylactic acid fully biodegradable dinnerware.

PLA has good compatibility, degradability, mechanical properties and physical properties. It is suitable for various processing methods such as blow molding and thermoplastic. It is easy to process and widely used. Our factory currently produces Households, such as tableware, bowls, straws, packaging, cups, lunch boxes, etc. And we support customization of various shapes, styles, colors, etc.
