A new report released by the American Plastics Industry Association says that there is no inevitable link between the development of the bioplastics industry and the establishment of a robust bioprocessing industry
this report, published by the bioplastics Committee of the association, mainly discusses the ways and impacts of the bioplastics industry to achieve independent development without relying on biofuels
according to the report, bioplastics currently account for less than 1% of all plastics, and with the emergence of shale gas, it is less likely that bioplastics will replace all traditional plastics in the future
consumers' awareness of environmental protection is becoming stronger and stronger, and products containing bioplastics are beginning to be favored, "but only on the premise that the price and performance are comparable to traditional plastics can they be competitive", the report said. If the price is higher, consumers will not spend money on bioplastics
can always provide us with reliable i.500 ± 50mm/min data to support the report that the raw materials that can be used to produce plastics continue to develop, including grain and feed crops including rapeseed, cassava, corn, flax, rice, sorghum, soybean, sugar beet, sugarcane and wheat
the report said: "although these raw materials can also be used as food raw materials, the diversity of choices has brought us new opportunities to choose the most effective raw materials with the least ecological impact according to specific occasions."
many brands, such as Coca Cola, P & G, Pepsi, Unilever and Nestle, have announced their intention to use renewable raw material packaging
the report said: "the use of non food raw materials can bring benefits to society and the environment, and will also have an impact on the economy. These companies purchase a large number of agricultural bulk products. If handled improperly, it may have negative effects, leading to rising food prices."
DuPont's processing technology enhances the performance of 3D printing parts. The company's packaging and industrial product technical manager Carol van zoeren, head of the beginingof Life Committee under the bioplastics Committee of the American Plastics Industry Association, said in a statement: "The petrochemical and traditional plastics industry developed a century ago by relying on the by-products of fuel production. It is reasonable to assume that the bioplastics industry will follow a similar path. But we see some deep-seated differences between then and today - demand, technology and infrastructure. We believe that bioplastics can benefit from a robust biofuel industry, but other ways can also be generally narrow speed range and feasible."
