Is CPLA compostable cutlery really biodegradable?

What is CPLA?

First of all, you should know what is PLA. PLA is the abbreviation of polylactic acid. It is made from corn starch, sugar cane or sugar beet. CPLA is a crystalline PLA with higher strength and can withstand higher temperatures. After heating, the PLA absorbs heat, and after the heat is released, the crystal becomes CPLA. The source of CPA raw materials is sufficient and renewable, the production process of polylactic acid is pollution-free, and the product can be biodegraded to realize the cycle in nature, so it is an ideal green polymer material.

However, the pure PLA material has the problems of heat resistance (deformation above 55°C) and insufficient flexibility. However, when the crystallinity reaches a certain level and the plastic crystal is larger than the wavelength of visible light, the heat resistance after crystallization is greatly improved and can be heat resistant above 80°C, it can be microwaved without distortion. So it is also the reason why tableware uses CPLA.

CPLA is an environmentally friendly and biodegradable plastic. It is not only a 100% plant-based source, but also a 100% fully degradable plastic. It combines the characteristics of safety, non-toxic, environmental protection, and sustainable production. It is the first choice for environmentally friendly plastic products.

Features of CPLA tableware


Compared with traditional plastic tableware, CPLA biodegradable tableware can be degraded into CO2 and H2O by microorganisms and light. Its degradation products are non-toxic and harmless, and will not pollute the environment. The monomer producing polylactic acid is lactic acid, and lactic acid can be produced by fermentation of crops or agricultural by-products such as wheat, rice and sugar beet. Therefore, the raw materials for the production of polylactic acid are renewable. CPLA tableware can not only degrade but also compost.

Healthy and harmless

Polylactic acid can be hydrolyzed by acid or enzyme to produce lactic acid in the human body. As a metabolite of cells, lactic acid can be further metabolized by enzymes in the body to produce CO2 and H2O. Therefore, polylactic acid is non-toxic and harmless to the human body, and has good biocompatibility and bioabsorbability. Polylactic acid has passed the certification of the US Food and Drug Administration and can be used as a biological material implanted in the human body.

Physical processability

As a thermoplastic polymer material, polylactic acid has good plasticity and physical processing properties, high melting point and crystallinity, good elasticity and flexibility, and excellent thermoformability. So we provide CPLA tableware in various sizes and shapes. Our tableware consists of environmentally friendly forks, Knife, spoons, and sets for your choice.

Ease of use

Disposable tableware brings great convenience to fast food and other industries. Our environmentally friendly tableware also provides various styles to meet the needs of different customers in different usage scenarios. It can be heated by microwave and is healthy and non-toxic. The processing method is also simple, so there is no need to worry about the processing cost and pollution to the environment after use.

Biodegradable Disposable CPLA Cutlery Set

We aim to produce efficient and environmentally friendly tableware, not only products can be 100% biodegradable, but also the packing material can be 100% biodegradable. And any style mould can be made in our factory , we can embossing any logo or brand on the product. We can print customers logo, company name, brand and so on on the bags or cartons.
