Biodegradable Plastic

Biodegradable Plastic

Biodegradable product produced by these types of plastic materials are decomposable in the natural environment.Biodegradable plastics are also involved in corrosion prevention.Biodegradable Plastics play an important role in aiding the collection and source separation of organic waste. These fully biodegradable and compostable plastics can be used as compost bags or bin liners for food waste collection. Unlike bags made of regular polyethylene, bags made of compostable plastics do not interfere with the composting process nor in any way degrade the quality of the final compost.

Natur-Tec offers a proprietary biodegradable resin that can be converted into film and bags of any size and thicknesses. This resin can be processed on regular blown-film equipment. NTIC’s biodegradable resin meets all international standards for compostable plastics such as ASTM D6400 (U.S.), EN 13432 (Europe) and GreenPLA (Japan) among others.

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.

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.

Environmental Waste Management Friday, Mar 7 2008 

With increased environmental issues, environmental waste management has become imperative. Many businesses and households use harmful materials in their day to day activities. These activities produce wastes that are very harmful to nature and living things. The process of collecting, transporting, processing and disposing waste material is known as Waste Management. Waste Management not only focuses on the proper disposal of these wastes but also see whether we can reuse and recycle certain materials from waste matter. NTIC provides innovative environmental technologies to address these issues. It produces Polymer Energy with the help of environmental technology for economical and environmental gain. Polymer Energy system is an alternative and effective method to recycle and dispose plastic wastes. The polymer Energy system effectively converts plastics into crude oil with the use of Catalytic Pyrolysis. NTIC uses Composting method to transfer biodegradable waste into useful Biodegradable plastics. These Biodegradable plastics are fully degradable and prevent the soil from getting polluted. The biodegradable plastics produced from biodegradable polymer resin are environmental friendly with greater mechanical strength properties.

Environmental Technologies Thursday, Feb 14 2008 

With the globe becoming increasingly pollution-prone, all of us face the threat of a dark future devoid of the present beauties of the world. Globally, there is an alarming increase in environmental pollution. Considering the depletion of useful natural resources and the pollution of the environment, the predictions about the end of the Earth no more seem to be wild fantasies. In such a bleak scenario, only environment-friendly technologies can save us from environmental disasters.

Environmental Technologies (Clean or Green Technologies) are the only way to control pollution and create a hazard-free environment. The main concept behind environmental technologies is to convert environmental beneficial material into value added products and services. The purpose of implementing environmental friendly technology is to minimize environmental pollution. Some of the beneficial factors are:

    1. Minimum materials as input
    2. High energy conservation.
    3. Least pollution.
    4. Minimum waste disposal.
    5. Numerous valuable by-products are recovered.

      NTIC is an extremely environment-friendly and eco-conscious organization which has completely understood the concept of environmental technology. NTIC stands in offering an environment-beneficial clean technology to the public.
