Biodegradable film bags Friday, Jul 11 2008 

Bags made of biodegradable polythene film, which decompose when bear to sun, air, and moisture, and are also suited for composting have been projected as an alternative to conventional plastic shopping bags. However, they do not willingly decompose in a sealed landfill and symbolize a possible contaminant to plastic recycling operations.

Natur-Tec an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plastics manufacturing biodegradable and compostable trash bags. Plastic custom bags have advantages and disadvantages when compared to alternatives such as paper bags. Heavy duty multiple-use shopping bags are frequently considered environmentally superior than single-use paper or plastic custom bags. Single-use bags can be recycled, or can be reused by persons as trash bags, storage bags, and so on.


Understanding Biodegradable Plastic Resin Tuesday, Jun 24 2008 

Plastic resin – Plastics are resin specific which means plastics are not easily recyclable to other forms. But it does not mean they are to be discarded because they might be able to use for other purposes.

Biodegradable Packing and Packaging Material

Biodegradable packing and packaging material are just as effective as many of the plastic products used to ship items. The difference is that they will degrade or disintegrate over time rather than be released somewhere in the environment to remain for months or years at a time. With biodegradable packaging materials, they will dissolve over time and not have a negative impact on animal habitats and the environment. Many of these biodegradable packing and packaging material uses polyactic acid that is commonly referred to as resin. Biodegradable packing and packaging are plant-based, which means they are made up of renewable resources. They are created from nature, which means they decompose completely within weeks or months.

Necessity of disposing plastic waste

The usage of plastic products like plastic bags, carry bags, plastic bottles, etc., is rapidly increasing everywhere. But nobody aware of using such products, because they are very harmful for both the human beings and other living creatures when they are dumped into the ground. Considering environment and planet, the waste plastic products are recycled into an useful products.

Polymer Energy, LLC. is a joint venture of Northern Technologies International Corporation (NTIC). They provide economical and environmentally responsible alternative to plastic products. They uses Polymer Energy system for efficient conversion of plastic waste into crude oil. It is modular in design and a single module can produce up to 775 litres of crude oil for every ton of plastic wastes. Also it handles plastic that is contaminated with other kinds of waste such as metals, glass, dirt, water, etc.

Eco-friendly Bags – Option to a safer Environment Friday, May 30 2008 

Plastic, paper and cotton bags are probably the easiest and cheapest options when it comes to containing and transporting foods, powders, ice, chemicals and even wastes. Billions of single-use plastic bags are distributed free of cost every day. These free single-use bags might seem to be of great advantage apparently, but as the old adage goes, nothing in this world comes for free. We pay heavily for using each of these bags with our environment and future. The disposal and littering of these bags also threatens the environment and the future of mankind and all living forms. These plastic bags are often disposed off into water or littered on land. Thousands of marine lives are put into danger due to this.

So we see that in-spite of the plastic beings ‘free’ of cost, there’s actually a major cost that needs to be paid indirectly and it threatens the mere existence of all living forms on the face of the earth. Mass movements are taking place all over the world in order to reduce the consumption of these plastic and paper bags due to their ill-effects on the environment. Luckily, though, we have seen the introduction of reusable, eco-friendly, environment safe and biodegradable bags on the market to substitute them. These bags are generally made of Polypropylene. They are simple to produce, strong and can be made of different weight or thickness depending on the intended use. Bags made of this durable material are water repellent and avoids bacteria and odor. They are not affected by chemicals or solvents and comply with FDA regulations.

The reusable, eco-friendly, compostable bags proves to be a perfect alternative to the toxic plastic or paper bags and should be adopted for a better, healthier and safer environment.
