Compostable materials are similar to biodegradable materials because they are designed to return to Earth safely, but with additional benefits. Once the material is completely decomposed, they provide nutrients to the soil. These materials should be added to the compost pile, not just the landfill, as they can help the growth of trees and plants.
Oil-based plastics are collected and reprocessed to produce new Pet Preform products. They can re-melt the plastic for further use or into a specially designed machine to return the plastic to its starting point: pellets.
Although they do not decompose naturally, they include polypropylene (PP), low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Many types within can be recycled. It is important to ask your recycler or municipality for plastics that will be accepted for recycling, based on the identification number of the plastic type.
Limitations of biopolymers
Biopolymers have so far failed to replace every plastic, but they are a green alternative with many benefits. Some consumers are skeptical about the fact that some biopolymers do not behave like typical thermoplastics. If you want to increase calories or stress, you need the opposite effect. The final stage of the product may be damaged or distorted than you might expect.
Another issue is worrying about a shorter shelf life. For example, you bought a plastic container with a long shelf life (such as mayonnaise or mustard). If the container begins to decompose before the condiment is completed, the container does not perform its duties. It all depends on what you want to do.
We offer fully compostable/biodegradable molded parts and reuse used oil-based plastics. As a China Plastic Handle Manufacturers, we know that we are the link to provide a cleaner and safer environment, because ordinary plastics take decades to break down. In the near future, new research on biopolymers may produce new bioplastic products from renewable sources, which is easier for our environment.
With higher quality, better recycling options and cost-effectiveness, it is difficult to beat biopolymer plastics. If you have any other questions or concerns regarding the use of our environmental solutions, please contact us. Jilian mold, we have a very skilled plastic injection molding machine team that can help solve any problems you face.
