When we walked into the supermarket, 80% of the products inside were plastic-packaged products. This kind of plastic packaging is used in huge quantities, but it is difficult to degrade, which brings a serious burden to the environment.
The ocean has become a garbage dump. In some areas, hundreds of thousands or even millions of tons of plastic garbage are floating, and there may be more garbage deposited in unknown areas. The garbage we can see with our naked eyes is only a small part of it. Approximately 3 billion tons of polymer materials are produced in the world every year, and these polymer materials are widely used in various fields. It is conservatively estimated that about one-thousandth of the polymer materials will eventually flow to the sea in the form of plastic waste. Year after year, the total amount of plastic waste collected in the sea is already huge.
When plastic enters the sea, the debris is easily mixed with plankton. Larger organisms will eat the plastic particles along with the plankton. However, the microplastic particles are difficult to digest and will eventually accumulate in the body of marine organisms, which may also enter the human body along the food chain.
Plastics have a variety of effects in the organism-most of them are adverse effects. These plastics usually release some compounds that can affect the secretion of hormones, which in turn affect animal behavior.
Biodegradable product packaging is made of fully biodegradable materials, which can be degraded and used for product or food packaging. The difference with ordinary plastic packaging bags is that after being discarded, biodegradable product packaging can be degraded by the action of microorganisms existing in nature under specific conditions of natural or composting, and finally converted into carbon dioxide and water, while the ordinary plastic packaging bag is not degradable, or it takes about five hundred years to degrade, which is harmful to the environment.
The fully biodegradable plastic granular material developed by Zhiben biodegradable packaging manufacturer adopts renewable plant-based material polymerization technology. Through self-developed domestic industrialized equipment, it has successfully produced biodegradable packaging materials. Various test indicators show that the products made of materials can completely replace ordinary plastics and are more environmentally friendly and safer than ordinary plastics.
