Frequently asked questions
JBPTL resins are developed from renewable agricultural feedstocks, such as corn sugar, hemp oil and soybean oil. These feedstocks are then processed into high performance polymers. In contrast, conventional plastics are derived from petroleum.
Biodegradable refers to the ability of a substance to break down into smaller parts so that microorganisms can consume it. Given enough time, all products eventually biodegrade, but for example plastics take longer.
Hydrocarbon plastics are made from a number of petroleum-based chemicals and additives. Many of these have been proven to be carcinogenic, and have other harmful effects on the balance of animal life. The persistence of the chemical makeup of these compounds causes the products made from them to form a non-biodegradable “blanket” that is now so pervasive in our environment that it is suffocating, suffocating and starving animal life on this planet.
JBTPL products that meet ISO 17088 standards can biodegrade in a variety of environments including soil, household compost, industrial manure. We recommend that you compost these products; You can contact your local waste and/or recycling vendor for more information about household or industrial composting programs in your area. In any case, it is also important that you follow your standard laboratory procedures for waste disposal.
We must realize that there is no safe place for this toxic bio-accumulation, and we still produce hydrocarbon plastics at a rate of about 80 billion pounds per year through the manufacture of virgin plastics for bottles, plastic bags are increasing. packaging, and every other application that our current lifestyle demands. We need smarter science and a more modest lifestyle.
Some of the high growth applications of bioplastics include. Renewable resource based and compostable film packaging, shopping and refuse waste bags Agricultural products, such as biodegradable mulch film, plant pot and steak catering products, such as trays, cups, plates, cutlery and bags Rigid packaging, such as trays, containers, bottles and pouches and turns off netting
JBTPL resins can be processed on standard plastic processing equipment designed for thermoplastic resins. However, due to the different nature of the material, the processing conditions need to be adjusted. For example, the process temperature required to extract bioplastic resins is lower than the temperature required to convert conventional plastics. This provides the advantage of low energy consumption for the converter and adds to the low carbon foot print of polyethylene.
JBTPL products are considered an environmentally responsible alternative to petroleum based plastics. They rely less on fossil fuels, a non-renewable resource. They are also biodegradable when disposed of properly, reducing waste.
