Bioplastics are currently a hot and widely discusseed topic. Your can find our company´s view on this issue in the attached document entitled: BIOPLASTICS - ARE THEY THE RIGHT CHOICE?
100% degradable, made from corn starch
Today, ecology and sustainable development are among the hottest topics in the industry, business and everyday life.
BIO bags and films produced by GRANITOL are products that support the current trend. These are products made from certified materials, renewable sources such as polylactic acid (PLA) and other biodegradable copolyesters. The combination of multiple types of copolyesters give the products unique properties.
Bio-compostable products are suitable for only one method of disposal (except incineration) - composting. This means that when the bag or film is exposed to a humid environment with the presence of soil bacteria, a natural biodegradation process occurs. The film not only breaks down, but actually breaks down into substances that naturally enter the nutrient cycle in nature. However, a strict separation of bio-waste is a prerequisite, since mixing with conventional plastic ways makes the latter unsuitable for recycling. Bio-compostable plastics cannot be recycled.
Composting (biodegradation) is a biological method of biodegradable waste (BRO) treatment, which transforms biowaste (BRO) into compost under controlled aerobic process conditions (i.e. air access) and microorganism activity.
The decomposition time of these products depends on several factors: raw material used, environmental conditions, humidity, temperature, oxygen access.
a) in domestic composts - lengthy process, depending on the type of compost (30°C, up to 365 days)
b) in industrial composts - (60°C, 180 days) EN 13432
Compostable films do not adversely affect the composting process. Compost quality is not affected.
With the above-mentioned qualities, these compostable bags (unlike ordinary polyethylene bags) can be used in two ways. Firstly, the product can be used as a standard carrier bag (for transporting goods, as a promotional tool), as long as it is handled in a dry environment. Secondly, it can be used for biodegradable waste collection at home or in the garden (vegetable, grass, weed, etc.).
The BIO bag filled with biodegradable waste can be placed into containers for biodegradable waste or composted in one's own garden. A bag with waste only needs to be covered with organic material – compost.
ADVANTAGES OF BIO BAGS AND FILMS
