“ Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.”
As the world is moving towards sustainable ways of living, the growing trend of technological innovations to create more sustainable products appear to be at the forefront now. Moving to a greener and more sustainable society is a must as the challenges of global warming, environmental degradation and resource depletion are becoming increasingly critical.
In line with the latest technological developments/advancements toward SUSTAINABILITY, United Precision Plastics has been researching how our products can be made environmentally friendly for many years.
We are pleased to inform you that we are now legally (licence) and technically equipped to produce and supply Sustainable products.
The term “bioplastics” is actually used for two separate things:
Bio-based plastics :
vThis means that the material is (partly) derived from biomass or plants ie which are renewable sources.
vBiomass for plastics are usually from corn, sugarcane, or cellulose. Therefore this is not fossil fuel based, hence it is also called as Green material
Biodegradable plastics :
vPlastics that can be completely broken down by microbes in a reasonable timeframe, given specific conditions.
vMicro-organisms in the environment are able to convert biodegradable materials to natural substances such as water, CO2, and compost without additives within a certain time and at a particular location.
NOTE: Not all bio-based plastics are biodegradable, and not all biodegradable plastics are bio-based.
Bio based And Bio Degradable : These are usually materials made from cellulose acetate (plant based) or lactic acid based
What is compostability?
Fragmentation – first step in the biodegradation process, in which organic matter is broken down into microscopic fragments
