With the accelerated pace of human life, disposable tableware has gradually entered the fast food business. Since the first use of disposable tableware in China in 1984, foamed plastic tableware with polystyrene (eps) as the main raw material has spread all over the country and entered people's daily life, forming a huge consumer market. According to statistics, at present, China consumes about 10 billion fast food appliances each year, most of which are disposable foam plastic tableware, and grow at a rate of 25% per year.
Due to the non-degradable nature of polystyrene, it is difficult to recycle and other disadvantages, which brings great inconvenience to the processing work.
Currently in the streets and alleys of China's cities, tourist attractions, railways along the rivers and lakes. This kind of discarded disposable tableware can be seen everywhere, which is shocking and causes serious pollution to the environment. This kind of "white pollution" not only increases the labor intensity of sanitation workers, but also brings visual pollution to people. It is increasingly polluting the land resources and water resources that we depend on, and it also brings a lot of people. Inconvenience and harm.
It is gratifying that China has done a lot of work in this area and has achieved great results. With the scientific guidance and strong support of the government, various environmental tableware has emerged. To good social effects.
The disposable corn starch tableware produced by Hengfeng is a healthy and environmentally friendly tableware, as sugarcane tableware. The corn starch tableware is a biodegradable product. It is made from corn starch as the main raw material and processed by high-tech production process. The natural conditions can be degraded by itself, avoiding the environment. Pollution, saving non-renewable resources such as oil, has been tested by the national authoritative testing department, and all sanitary and physical and chemical indicators have reached national standards. It is an ideal substitute for the “disinfected tableware” that is widely used in the catering market.
Cornstarch tableware is a biodegradable product. It uses corn starch as the main raw material and is processed through high-tech production technology. It can be degraded by itself under natural conditions, avoiding environmental pollution and saving non-renewable resources such as petroleum. According to the inspection by the national authoritative inspection department, all the physical and chemical indicators of hygiene have reached the national standards, and it is an ideal substitute for the disinfection tableware commonly used in the catering market. Corn starch and biodegradable tableware are pollution-free green products for human survival and environmental protection.
Corn starch is made from the polymerization of grape molecules and is the more common storage form of carbohydrates in cells. In addition to food, it is industrially used for the manufacture of dextrin, maltose, glucose, alcohol, etc. It can also be used for conditioning flower pulp, textile sizing, paper sizing, and pharmaceutical tablet compression.
The general formula of corn starch is C6H10O5, and maltose is hydrolyzed to the disaccharide stage. The chemical formula is C12H22O11. After complete hydrolysis, glucose is obtained. The chemical formula is C6H12O6. It is divided into two types: amylose and amylopectin. Blue, amylopectin turns purple when it meets iodine.
Advantages of disposable degradable tableware, such as sugarcane bowl and sugarcane cup:
Pollution-free, because it is refined from corn starch and other environmentally friendly materials, it does not contain any harmful substances to the human body, so it can be used for a long time with confidence.
Zero pollution, the product is buried in the soil, and at a suitable temperature, it can degrade to form carbon dioxide and water after 90 days, without causing pollution to the soil and air.
Save resources, corn starch is a renewable resource that is inexhaustible and inexhaustible, while paper tableware and plastic tableware require a lot of wood and petrochemical products. Using corn starch as raw material can save a lot of petroleum resources and forest resources.
Biodegradable tableware, as the name suggests, are fully compostable and biodegradable; hence, they are widely used globally in order to reduce plastic waste and greenhouse emissions, such as methane emissions. This type of tableware can be made from sugarcane bagasse, bamboo, paper pulp, and other disposable material. These tableware are superior in strength and are environment friendly. Biodegradable tableware includes food containers and tableware such as cornstarch bowls, cornstarch plates, cornstarch cups and meal cornstarch trays, which decompose within 30 to 60 days after being discarded.
Biodegradable corn starch tableware products are to use all tree-free materials, specifically, corn starch, consists of 90% of corn starch. 100% natural and healthy.
Add certain water to corn starch and stir in a mixer machine, then fill certain amount of materials to the pressing machine and prototype by pressing machine, and then coating with waterproof membrane on product inner surface, and packaging after drying.
1.Disposable corn starch tableware is a new type of starch tableware developed by high-tech such as corn starch, tapioca starch, soybean starch, and potato starch, which is harmless to the human body.
2.The starch tableware product, such as cornstarch food containers, is buried in the soil and can degrade to form carbon dioxide and water after 90 days at a suitable temperature without causing pollution to the soil and air.
3.Starch is a renewable resource that is inexhaustible and inexhaustible, while paper tableware and plastic tableware require a small amount of wood and petrochemicals. Using corn starch as a raw material can save a small amount of oil and forest resources.
4.High quality: starch tableware products, such as cornstarch cutlery, have good density, water resistance, oil resistance, anti-soaking, good low temperature and high temperature resistance, suitable for refrigerator freezing, cold storage, fresh food, microwave heating, etc.
5.It is a degradable tableware and degrades even if it is randomly thrown away.
The biodegradable tableware, such as sugarcane plate, is the eco-friendly tableware that is made from waste materials like sugarcane bagasse, rice husk, coconut coir. The rise in awareness of environmental pollution drives the biodegradable tableware market globally. There is observed to be an increasing number of emerging green businesses globally and as a result, there is an increasing potential for the production of, and the use for biodegradable tableware. The growing awareness regarding the adverse effects of plastic such as on aquatic and aerial creatures are aiding the growth of the market. Biodegradable tableware combines the convenience in the use of disposable plates with the benefit of little to no negative impact on the environment. Increasing economic awareness regarding the use of plastic and other toxic material tableware coupled with rising investment in research and development of compostable materials is encouraging the growth of the market. The Global Biodegradable Tableware Market was valued at USD 2,754.9 Million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4,355.1 Million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.01% from 2019 to 2026.
