Advantages of Biodegradable Plastic Bags
Biodegradable plastic bags are those that are degraded by the action of naturally occurring microorganisms such as bacteria, molds and algae under natural conditions such as soil and/or sand, and/or specific conditions such as composting or anaerobic digestion or aqueous cultures, and eventually degrade completely into carbon dioxide (CO2) or/and methane (CH4), water (H2O) and the mineralization of the elements they contain. Inorganic salts, as well as new biomass of plastic bags.
There are some products on the market that claim to be photodegradable and thermo-oxidative degradable, what is the difference between them and biodegradable plastics?
Photodegradable and thermo-oxide-degradable plastics are all additive degradable plastics, i.e. adding degradation additives to traditional PP and PE to achieve the so-called “degradation”, whose “degradation” process is only a physical fracture of the material, turning into microplastics invisible to the naked eye, which is not only This is not only not conducive to the recycling and cleaning of plastics, but also will cause more harm to the environment. Biodegradable plastic, on the other hand, can be completely decomposed into carbon dioxide or methane, water and other biomass plastics under certain conditions, which will not affect the environment.
Biodegradable plastic bags advantages of use:
1、Easy to use
Biodegradable plastic bags in the production process more in line with the laws of science, not only green and healthy, will not decompose harmful substances, and very convenient to use. Because of its wear-resistant, waterproof, good texture, recognized by users.
2、Meet the needs of users
Today, biodegradable plastic bags are widely used in many industries, such as milk tea stores, clothing stores and food stores.
The degradation effect of biodegradable plastic bags depends largely on environmental conditions, such as temperature, and humidity. In the absence of the necessary microorganisms and other environmental conditions, such as proper temperature, the plastic will not degrade in a reasonable amount of time. Just like today, most biodegradable plastics do not degrade in an open environment.
So it is important to understand that most biodegradable plastics do not degrade in an open environment, so biodegradable plastic bags, although used in many places, cannot be discarded at random to achieve good results. So it is recommended that no matter which plastic bags are used, they should be disposed of and not discarded at will.
