Features and Benefits of Degradable Bags

Plastics are all above the place and are utilised in practically all territories in the present-day, remembering for the creation of cutleries, bundling and wrapping things, bottles, food holders, garments, wearable, vehicle parts, gadgets, pens, and furniture among numerous alternative things. We are creating more burn through plastic now than any other time in recent memory in mankind's history. These things are finding their method into our seas and in any event, sullying our drinking water. One serious issue with plastic is that it regularly requires a few investment for it to separate once disposed of, prompting unpleasant issues with landfill waste and representing a risk to normal life. Degradable plastics use alternate materials or specialised enzymatic or chemical reactions to smash down the material fast once exposed to the elements. Therefore degradable bags are manufactured by Super Plast Plastic Factory, leading Degradable Plastic Bags Manufacturers in UAE. We concentrate on the assembling of Waste Bags, 100% Virgin Oxo Bio-Degradable Bags, Carry Bags, Banana Cut Bags, and so forth. The entirety of our plastic packs is handcrafted to meet the specific requirements and use of our clients.

Biodegradable bags

Compostable bags only biodegrade in industrial composting plants. Biodegradable bags will biodegrade in the normal environment, nevertheless come in alternative types:

2. Classification of bioplastics

Among the broadly used bio-based plastics, PLA is broadly used. Moreover, the bioplastics these days have found applications for both short-shelf life products like fresh fruits and vegetables and long-shelf life products, like potato chips and pasta (Table 2 ).

The factory does not use any single-use plastic in the production process of the compostable bags. But there is water based ink used when printing the film. The waste ink water goes to processing and they recycle and reuse whatever ink they can recover. A fully closed loop system.

Why Degradable or Biodegradable bags/film?

Conventional plastics do not break down. Litter and landfill waste take years, even decades, to degrade. Litter is visual pollution, an eyesore that regulations and educational programs have failed to eliminate. In landfills, not only do ordinary plastics degrade very slowly but also anything contained within them may not reach their full degradation potential. This results in a needless waste of valuable landfill space.

What is biodegradable

Biodegradation is the process by which organic substances are broken down by the enzymes produced by living organisms. The term is often used in relation to ecology, waste management and environmental remediation (bioremediation). Organic material can be degraded aerobically, with oxygen, or anaerobically, without oxygen. A term related to biodegradation is biomineralisation, in which organic matter is converted into minerals.

Biodegradable matter is generally organic material such as plant and animal matter and other substances originating from living organisms, or artificial materials that are similar enough to plant and animal matter to be put to use by microorganisms. Some microorganisms have the astonishing, naturally occurring, microbial catabolic diversity to degrade, transform or accumulate a huge range of compounds including hydrocarbons (e.g. oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), pharmaceutical substances, radionuclides and metals. Major methodological breakthroughs in microbial biodegradation have enabled detailed genomic, metagenomic, proteomic, bioinformatic and other high-throughput analyses of environmentally relevant microorganisms providing unprecedented insights into key biodegradative pathways and the ability of microorganisms to adapt to changing environmental conditions.

Degradable vs. Biodegradable vs. Compostable

Compostable Plastic is plastic which is:

capable of undergoing biological decomposition in a compost site as part of an available program, such that the plastic is not visually distinguishable and breaks down to carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass, at a rate consistent with known compostable materials (e.g. cellulose). and leaves no toxic residue.
American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM).

In order for a plastic to be called compostable, three criteria need to be met:

  1. Biodegrade - break down into carbon dioxide, water, biomass at the same rate as cellulose (paper).
  2. Disintegrate - the material is indistinguishable in the compost, that it is not visible and needs to be screened out.
  3. Eco-toxicity - the biodegradation does not produce any toxic material and the compost can support plant growth.

Biodegradable Plastic

Biodegradable Plastic is plastic which will degrade from the action of naturally occurring microorganism, such as bacteria, fungi etc. over a period of time. Note, that there is no requirement for leaving "no toxic residue", and as well as no requirement for the time it needs to take to biodegrade.

Degradable Plastic

Degradable Plastic is plastic which will undergo a significant change in its chemical structure under specific environmental conditions resulting in a loss of some properties. Please note that there is no requirement that the plastic has to be degrade from the action of "naturally occurring microorganism" or any of the other criteria required for compostable plastics.

Please visit environmentalbags.com to know more about degradation and the types of degradable bags.

A plastic therefore may be degradable but not biodegradable or it may be biodegradable but not compostable (that is, it breaks down too slowly to be called compostable or leaves toxic residue).

Bioplastics

Bioplastics can take different length of times to totally compost, based on the material and are meant to be composted in a commercial composting facility, where higher composting temperatures can be reached and is between 90-180 days. Most existing international standards require biodegradation of 60% within 180 days along with certain other criteria for the resin or product to be called compostable. It is also important to make the distinction between degradable vs. biodegradable vs. compostable as often these terms are used interchangeably.

Biodegradable or Biodegradeable?

It is very common to misspell biodegradable as biodegradeable (please take note yourself as some of our domains are actually misspelt!) and the same happens with degradable as degradeable. In fact when written down the word biodegradable often looks like an incorrect spelling and has been known to be corrected to biodegradeable by some overzealous and missinformed editors. So, now you know if someone tells you otherwise stick out your guns!

Green is the new black

Recycling labelThe choice of packaging used by e-commerce retailers and how well this demonstrates a consideration for the environment affects the purchasing decisions of consumers, according to a packaging survey.

Research by strategic logistics partner Dotcom Distribution revealed that 60% of consumers think it is either important or very important that a retailer's packaging is sustainable.

Their 2013 e-Commerce Packaging Survey found that retailers who demonstrate sustainability is a priority are perceived as environmentally friendly, whilst customers themselves like to be seen as environmentally-conscious when deciding on where to shop and what to buy.

"It's clear that a retailer's packaging choice can have repercussions", said Maria Haggerty, president of Dotcom Distribution. "The results of this study show that packaging is not to be overlooked or underestimated for its possible impact on a brand."
