What is Biodegradable Packaging Material?

Biodegradable materials can be divided into completely biodegradable plastics and destructive biodegradable plastics. Starch-based fully biodegradable plastic; starch-based fully biodegradable plastic. Biodegradable plastics based on natural substances such as starch currently mainly include the following products: polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), starch plastics, bioengineering plastics, bio-universal plastics (polyolefin and polychlorinated vinyl)

Biodegradable materials

Due to its good degradability, biodegradable plastics are mainly used as soft and hard packaging materials for food, which is also its largest application field at this stage.

The main target markets for biodegradable plastics are plastic packaging films, agricultural films, single-use plastic bags and single-use plastic tableware. Compared with traditional plastic packaging materials, the cost of new degradable materials is slightly higher. However, with the enhancement of environmental protection awareness, people are willing to use new degradable materials with a slightly higher price to protect the environment. The enhancement of environmental protection awareness has brought huge development opportunities to the biodegradable new material industry. With the development of China’s economy, the successful hosting of many large-scale events such as the Olympic Games and the World Expo that shocked the world, the need for the protection of the locations of various world cultural heritage and national scenic spots, the problem of environmental pollution caused by plastics has been paid more and more attention, and governments at all levels have The control of white pollution is listed as one of the key tasks.
