why should we ban single-use plastic August 12,2021.

The current situation: the global average consumption of 1 million plastic bags every 1 minute , the total annual global plastic consumption of 400 million tons , only 14% of the world's plastic packaging is recycled, and ultimately only 10% of the effective recycling, about 8 million tons of plastic waste into the ocean every year, all together can be 420 circles around the Earth, the Earth and the oceans are showing a very serious impact. Every year, 100,000 animals in the ocean die due to accidental ingestion of plastic. Meanwhile, it takes 200-1000 years for plastic to degrade, so the land and soil are seriously polluted and do not recover for a long time.

Global countries are aware of the importance of the earth's ecological environment, and more than a hundred countries have enacted plastic restrictions that require the conversion of single-use plastic products to biodegradable plastic products. Therefore plastic packaging material manufacturers need to make internal technical improvements. Plastic bags conforming to compostable plastic is the requirement that takes time, as well as the need to comply with different standards. For example, ASTM 6400 (compostable plastic specification), ASTM D6868 (biodegradable plastic specification for surface coating of paper or other compostable media) or EN 13432 (compostable packaging) standards state that these materials should biodegrade in an industrial composting environment in less than 180 days. Industrial composting environment means that a temperature of approximately 60°C is specified and microorganisms must be present. By this definition, compostable plastics do not leave debris in the residue that lasts longer than about 12 weeks, do not contain heavy metals or toxic substances, and can sustain plant life

GBPI has developed compost degradation testing instruments that can provide a complete solution for packaging material manufacturers to transform their production. The biodegradable compost degradation equipment can support microbial degradation, remote access, real-time capture and analysis of experimental data, and can be used for data tracking throughout the process. Companies that need to get free testing opportunities can call us. We are online 24 hours a day to serve you.

GBPI wants to help major packaging material companies to fulfill their vision of green production, so that reusable materials can be increased continuously to reduce the dependence on non-renewable resources. Reducing waste emissions and the environmental load of waste on the environment will contribute to the sustainable development of society. We are a professional manufacturer of plastic packaging testing machines, with advanced production equipment and more than 20 years of experience in the production of laboratory testing instruments, with strong research and development, design and production capabilities.
