Information
Italy's most influential big supermarket chain, Coop Italia, announced last month that the launch of the disposable cutlery series produced by Cargill-Dow's Nature Works biopolymer resin is a new proof of the high-profile plastic production of plastics.
 
However, one might raise the question that disposable cutlery can be considered environmentally compliant and attractive? Coop Italia's announcement emphasizes that some retailers are focusing on the use of renewable resources and are increasingly becoming the focus of market interest The The use of year-on-year renewable resources, such as corn (such as Nature Works), grains, wood, sugar cane, beet made of polymer, seems to be the ideal solution.
 
To be precise, biopolymers are not actually present, and as early as the beginning of the twentieth century, people had used cellulose to produce cellulose or cellophane. However, although the cellulose film is based on a biological source, it is non-composted. At least in the latest German DIN standard and the US ASTM standard for its testing is non-composting. Composting certification is a key requirement for biopolymers in today's environmentally conscious markets, particularly for biopolymers used for packaging.
 
The film division of a UCB company, a Belgian surface specialty chemicals company acquired by a private conglomerate in July last year, mentioned this when it comes to the company's Nature Flex series of completely degradable cellulosic films.
 
In terms of its natural state, this cellulose film is highly transparent, but has no resistance to moisture and heat sealing. Coatings and lacquers can overcome this drawback, but also
