Biodegradable bags ;are bags that are capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms.
Most bags that are manufactured from plastic are made from corn-based materials, like polylactic acid blends. Biodegradable plastic bags are nowadays as strong and reliable as traditional (mostly polyethylene)-bags. Many bags are also made from paper, organic materials, or polycaprolactone.
What Does Biodegradable Mean?
Biodegradable refers to a product breaking down into natural elements, carbon dioxide, and water vapor by organisms like bacteria and fungi. Technically, just about everything is biodegradable, although it will take hundreds of thousands of years for most things to biodegrade.
To earn a biodegradable label, products and materials must quickly decompose into natural materials. Third-party certifiers typically restrict acceptable breakdown times between six and nine months. Discover the benefits of biodegradable products below.
Biodegradable products break down much faster than other types of products.
Biodegradable products break down into carbon dioxide, water vapor, and organic material, which aren't harmful to the environment.
Typically, they're made from sustainable materials and plant by-products, such as cornstarch or sugarcane.
Biodegradable Plastic Bag
Choose Biodegradable Plastic Bag ;to tackle pollution problems from the supply chain by minimizing conventional plastics. We supply plastic bags made from biodegradable materials fabricated through a proprietary manufacturing process. The biodegradable materials are combined with traditional plastics to enhance the required qualities without reducing the quality of the final product.
The proprietary manufacturing process entails converting potato plant-based carbohydrates to an amorphous, 100% natural bio-based polymer. The polymer is then fused with conventional plastics, recycled plastics, and bioplastics to enhance features like durability and lightweight without detracting from the polymer's biodegradability.
Reduce conventional plastic to create plastic bags that are highly durable and biodegradable. By minimizing the supply of traditional plastics in the market, we’ll help further enhance the prospects of a future free from plastic pollution. Stream Peak’s Biodegradable Plastic Bags offer several benefits.
The enhanced film strength allows a reduction in thickness. Plant-based plastic bags are much more durable than their fossil-fuel-based counterparts. The proprietary manufacturing process fuses the plant-based polymers with certain conventional plastics to increase their tensile strength, making for highly durable yet lightweight, biodegradable bags.
Reducible and Industrially Recyclable
Our Biodegradable Plastic Bags are created with recycling in mind. When they are disintegrating into biomaterial in the soil or ocean bed, the disposable, biodegradable bags can be processed through a recycling process over seven cycles. Either way, it’s implausible for our plastic to end up clogging our ocean and waterways or contributing in any way to plastic pollution.
Reduction of Carbon Footprints
By minimizing the need to source plastic from fossil fuel, our Biodegradable Plastic Bag options will help reduce our carbon footprints to make way for a cleaner, greener future.
Plastic bags cause biodegradation to take place without fragmentation. It also allows the PBAT (Polybutylene Adipate Terephthalate) to biodegrade in simulated marine environment conditions and lowers the temperature required.
Our Biodegradable Plastic Bags are TUX ok compost & marine biodegradable and 100% USA Certified biobased products.
