Demand for disposable packaging supplies


We can no longer live without disposable packaging supplies, food packaging boxes in supermarkets and restaurants, the outer packaging of the food you buy, the packaged outer packaging bag, and the coffee cup. You use it directly or indirectly every day. Disposable packaging supplies.


Supermarket packaging box


According to statistics, every country in the world produces about 300 million tons of plastic each year. Every year, 10-20 million tons of plastic waste enters the ocean. Over time, it is broken into countless microplastics that exist in water bodies and can exist for hundreds of years. time. It is estimated that 1 million plastic beverage bottles are sold every minute in the world, and 5 trillion plastic bags are used every year. Water bottles, disposable containers, packaging bags, and tableware made of plastic have become part of our daily lives. These disposable plastic products turn into plastic garbage in a blink of an eye. For example, in many American supermarkets, people have become accustomed to using plastic bags provided by the store to carry large and small packages of goods. The United States consumes 100 billion plastic bags a year. In American hotels and fast food restaurants, generally only disposable foam tableware is provided, and restaurant trash bins are generally full of this kind of Non-compostable garbage.


The necessity and severity of environmental protection


The pollution caused by the excessive use of plastics has received increasing attention from the world.

The European Parliament passed the meeting in 2019. With an overwhelming advantage, the European Parliament passed a bill that reads "total ban EU countries from using disposable plastic products such as drinking straws, tableware and cotton swabs from 2021" to deal with the ocean and fields. And pollution in waterways. The Canadian government has also issued a statement stating that it will ban the use of a variety of disposable plastic products from 2021. Disposable plastic products such as disposable tableware, straws, tableware and stirring rods are prohibited. In a survey, less than 10% of plastics in Canada are recycled each year. If the government does not take any measures, by 2023, Canada will throw away approximately 11 billion Canadian dollars (approximately US$8.2 billion) of plastic materials every year. Plastic waste pollution is currently the most important aspect of social pollution. Among the 300 million tons of plastic waste generated globally, more than 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean.

The hazards of paper and plastic tableware


Plastic tableware includes two basic varieties of EPS (expandable polystyrene foam) and (PP polypropylene sheet), as well as degradable systems derived from EPS and PP through filling and modification. And polystyrene is extracted from petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource in itself. These tableware cannot meet high temperatures. In real life, such as takeaways, the temperature of freshly packaged food exceeds the safe temperature of lunch boxes, so we often contact these Cutlery will allow toxic substances into our body. And this kind of tableware is not burnable after use, and it takes 200 years to degrade naturally. The paper tableware is generally made of trees, which is a serious waste of resources.


Paper tableware includes two basic varieties: cardboard thermoforming and pulp molding. The development of paper tableware is later than plastic tableware. It is proposed that plastic tableware is not easy to degrade and pollute the environment after it is discarded. However, when wood is consumed, black liquor will be polluted during the pulping process, and the degradation rate is not as fast as bagasse environmentally friendly tableware.


Disposable tableware and disposable chopsticks made of wood and bamboo. Although the processing of wood and bamboo does not have as many chemicals as disposable lunch boxes, sulfur dioxide fumigation is used in the processing. If it is after fumigation, it will The omission of the boiling step will cause sulfur dioxide to remain on the chopsticks. Sulfur dioxide can damage the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and increase the risk of respiratory diseases. Moreover, the use of hydrogen peroxide for bleaching, hydrogen peroxide will harm the human stomach. The biggest disadvantage of wood and bamboo is that they are not resistant to moisture and are prone to mold. In order to prevent moisture and insects, various drugs will be used. These drugs will remain on the chopsticks to varying degrees. The use of such chopsticks will inevitably bring harm to human health. If the talc powder used for polishing in the production is left in the human body, it is easy to cause gallstones. These tableware are not only costly and unhealthy to use. Unless you have the patience to carefully check and clean them before use, actually, it has lost its convenience as a disposable tableware.


The nature of the raw material source of sugarcane bagasse


 Sugar made from sugar cane, the most important sugar product in international trade. According to the latest data released by the US Department of Agriculture, 103 countries and regions around the world produce sugar with a total output of about 190 million tons, of which cane sugar accounts for about all 80% of the output, the remaining 20% is beet sugar.

Pay attention to the importance of design management in sustainable design,ensure that the resources of the product in the entire life cycle are properly allocated. When optimizing the design, materials, resources, etc. should be used rationally to avoid adverse effects on the environment. Only by achieving these designs can the requirements of sustainable development be met.


Reasonable use of materials


Biomass fiber is the most abundant natural polymer material and is an inexhaustible resource for human beings. It is non-toxic and can be completely degraded by microorganisms. Because it combines the advantages of paper and plastic tableware, it shows excellent development opportunities when it comes to market. There is no black liquor pollution in the pulping process of paper, but it has a faster degradation rate than paper tableware and is more easily absorbed by the natural environment.

Environmental degradability of sugarcane bagasse


The environmentally friendly tableware made of sugarcane bagasse is mainly reflected in the improvement and innovation of materials. The raw materials for the production of this tableware are some plant pulps such as reed and sugarcanebagasse. There is also a certain proportion of wood pulp added and various additives such as water and oil resistance are used to form products processed by a series of tools. The production of this kind of tableware is also relatively simple. It does not take too long from building a factory to production, and the product has more prominent effects in terms of appearance, heat preservation, and water release.


It can be seen that among the currently used disposable tableware, the raw materials of fibrous tableware have the most advantages. They are renewable and inexpensive. The development of fibrous tableware can not only solve the serious pollution problem of current plastics, but is also closely related to our health. For merchants, choosing sustainable and environmentally friendly disposable packaging products is not only to respond to changes in national policies, but also to be responsible for environmental protection and consumers, and to establish a good corporate image. Only healthy and beneficial products can sustain long-term development!
