What is compostable PLA?

Polylactic acid (PLA) is a bioplastic material with rigidity and clarity similar to polystyrene (PS) or polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and is used in applications such as packaging, catering, agriculture, automobiles etc. PLA is one of the best products in emerging bioplastic market because of its availability specifically in regions where there is more demand such as the US, Europe, China, Japan and Thailand. Natural polymers, biopolymers, and synthetic polymers based on renewable resources are the basis for the twenty-first century portfolio of sustainable, eco-efficient plastics. These materials will one day replace petroleum-based polymers such as HDPE, PET, PP etc.   

Why Bioplastics?

Bioplastic are naturally derived from corn or other plants

Bioplastics do not consume fossil resources.

Bioplastics do not release  toxins into the environment, they compost quickly

Bioplastic raw materials are derived from renewable resources

Bioplastic material production is far more climate neutral

Bioplastic raw materials can be harvested locally so are more carbon neutral.
Composted bioplastic does not contribute to landfill

Composted bioplastic material is beneficial to the environment
