Are Biodegradable Milk Tea Bags Really Degradable?
In the process of achieving sustainable development is facing a relatively large problem is the lack of resources and environmental pollution, in the improvement of the environment appeared biodegradable bags, but many people still have a lot of doubts in their minds, such as biodegradable milk tea bags can really be degraded? With such doubts, along with the Kexing packaging to continue to look down it!
Biodegradable refers to plastics that can be dissolved by microorganisms in the soil, with the help of bacteria or their hydrolytic enzymes, these substances can be dissolved into carbon dioxide, water, cellular porous material and salt, can be completely dissolved by microorganisms and re-enter the ecosystem, is the hot spot of research and development today.
Biodegradable bags are therefore usually new plastics that are impact resistant and can be completely or partially dissolved in the natural environment by microorganisms such as bacteria, moulds and algae without causing environmental pollution. The principle of biodegradation is that bacteria or their hydrolytic enzymes convert polymers into small molecular fragments which are then further dissolved by bacteria into chemicals such as carbon dioxide and water.
With regard to biodegradable materials, different products have been developed and produced at this stage: firstly biodegradable epoxy resins and masterbatches include fully biodegradable epoxy resins, photobiodegradable masterbatches and composite biodegradable masterbatches. Secondly biodegradable plastic products include compost bags, rubbish bags, shopping bags, electronic equipment bags, agricultural mulch, cutlery, golf spikes and foam, plastic products usually include shopping bags, rubbish bags and office supplies.
