Belongs to the category of "disposable plastic tableware". At present, more than 98% of the corn starch tableware used in China is made of PP.
All according to the current definition of China degradable Association: all add PP, do not belong to the ranks of degradable tableware.
However, according to the actual degradable experiment: in a certain temperature composting environment conditions, more than 99.5% can be degraded. So at present, it is also widely used in China.
At present, there is no international degradation certificate.
Advantages: high hardness, similar to plastic.
Disadvantages: there are added plastic ingredients and other additives, no general degradable certificate.
100% sugarcane pulp, belonging to the category of "pulp tableware". 100% compostable and degradable.
Have international degradation certificate: BPI, EN13432, OK compose
Advantages: 100% plant fiber material, 100% degradable, with international degradation certification.
Disadvantages: soft material (but does not affect the actual use).
Bagasse and the biggest difference is that their corn starch products waterproof and oil resistance,
Waterproof and oil proof performance of bagasse products in about 1 week or so, and corn starch is permanent waterproof and oil proof.
Bagasse is suitable for short-term storage, and corn starch is suitable for long-term storage, such as put some frozen chicken.
Bagasse on components is more simple, is 100% compostable degradation, and corn starch containing a small amount of plastic, which is why most people like to use bagasse rather than the cause of the corn starch.
