Plastic is one of the most versatile materials around - it is lightweight, cheap, durable and widely used in various appliations. However, plastics take hundreds of years to decompose in nature, leading to the problem of plastic pollution. Furthermore, most commercially available biodegradable plastics (PLA, PBS and PBAT) are unable to be used as complete replacements for single-use plastics as they have weaker mechanical properties such as strength and temperature resistance. Therefore, a new biodegradable alternative is necessary to mitigate the serious environmental pollution problem brought about by conventional single-use plastics.

This technology is a bio-based, and degradable resin that meets international industrial composting standards and food contact safety standards. Produced through a propietary compounding process, the polymer also has excellent fluidity, toughness and good moulding performance that meet the production requirements in injection moulding, extrusion, thermoforming, and other moulding processes. This material aims to be a viable replacement to replace conventional plastics in disposable tableware, food packaging, and sanitary ware. The technology has also been validated and applied to disposable straws manufacturing, with all necessary certifications and standards acquired.


The technology consists of bio-based materials and is safe for food contact. It is non-toxic, non-polluting, and does not contain any harmful additives or inorganics.

Other features of the material include:

  • Fully biodegradable
  • 100% in-house formulation into granules with high quality and consistency
  • Good temperature resistance of up to 85°C, does not undergo deformation or breakage during usage
  • Suitable for injection moulding and extrusion without requiring pre-treatment
  • Complete degradation with no harmful residues within half a year under industrial composting conditions (up to 5mm thickness)


The use of this 100% biodegradable polymer composite has application in industries requiring a direct replacement of single-use plastics.

Potential applications include (but are not limited to):

  • Disposable food containers, packaging, cups, etc.
  • Disposable straws, chopsticks, and other hollow products.
  • Disposable cutlery and sanitary ware

Market Trends & Opportunities

The global market for biodegradable polymers is expected to grow exponentially with a CAGR of 4.59% by 2025. With major countries such as US, China and EU announcing legislations on banning conventional single-use plastics in the coming years and increased environmental awareness, the technology will be able to provide a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based plastics, particularly for disposable plastics used in the food and beverage industry.
