Its products also create plastic waste after use, especially single-use products. The biodegradable plastic can be used for thermoforming but cost of product is rather high compare to traditional plastic.
TAPIOPLAST•NTV is sustainable product which will offer to manufacturers at affordable price to drive bioplastic product to save the world from pollution. Compounded resin containing TAPIOPLAST•NTV at high ratio with PBAT and PLA can be processed by thermoforming to make many kind of biodegradable plastic product.
2. Food tray
Compounded resin containing TAPIOPLAST•NTV with PBAT and PLA can be processed by thermoforming to make food tray that can be completely biodegraded after discarding.
3. Plastic packaging
TAPIOPLAST•NTV can be compounded with PBAT and PLA to produce plastic packaging which can be completely biodegraded by microorganisms.
