INTRODUCING THE 100% BIODEGRADABLE & COMPOSTABLE PLA CUPS & BAGS
Poly lactic acid (PLA), a repeating chain of lactic acid, which undergoes a 2-step degradation process. First, the moisture and heat in the compost pile split the polymer chains apart, creating smaller polymers, and finally, lactic acid. Microorganisms in compost and soil consume the smaller polymer fragments and lactic acid as nutrients. Since lactic acid is widely found in nature, a large number of organisms metabolize lactic acid. The end result of composting is carbon dioxide, water and humus, a soil nutrient. This degradation process is temperature and humidity dependent. Cups compost in 90 to 180 days according to size and thickness.
Another option for disposing of PLA cups is recycling. NIR (Near Infrared Technology) can identify PLAfrom pile of garbage easily.
In anaerobic digestion, organic matter is degraded by a microbial population consisting of bacteria in the absence of oxygen and producing methane and carbon dioxide (= biogas) and compost without practically any exothermic heat. The biogas can be treated in a combined heat and power plant (CHP), producing electricity and heat, or can be upgraded to bio-methane. Typically out of one ton of bio-waste, 120 m3 of biogas can be produced with a total electricity yield of 250 kWh and a net electricity yield of 200 kWh.
Off grade PLA can also be recycled through hydrolysis. This process breaks down PLA into primaryfoundation Lactic Acid. Following the hydrolysis process Lactic Acid can be converted back into PLA resin.
Where infrastructure required it or composting or recycling are not available another disposal option is incineration

Being a distributor for the ecoSHOPPER box has worked really well for our business in a number of ways. They save us money, as we don’t have to buy plastic bags anymore, they are environmentally friendly, so are a superb match with our fresh fruit and vegetables, but probably best of all, is that our customers are now coming to us and want an ecoSHOPPER box. And they look great.
The ecoSHOPPER box is eco-friendly and 100% recyclable and in today’s world, where we must all use less plastic, it is a winner. Being free to the consumer, not only does it save people money, but it is also the perfect advertising media for our business. The ecoSHOPPER box is also great for impulse buys. 100% worth it!
Our business is all about luxury and style and it is important to us that we advertise on a product that refl ects this. The ecoSHOPPER box is not only practicable but also well designed. It is a real pleasure to work with iYFA who not only care about local business but also the environment.
