Plastics are listed as one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century, but most plastics are made from non-renewable petroleum by polycondensation of polyols and polyacids. It is well tolerated, it is difficult for sunlight, heat or bacteria to damage its structure, and it is difficult to degrade under natural conditions. While it brings convenience to our lives, it also endangers our health and destroys the ecological balance of the entire earth.

Research shows that 80% of the world's plastic waste is in the ocean, killing 100,000 marine mammals every year; microplastics are also found in our drinking water, and 83% of tap water in major cities around the world contains microplastics. The excess plastic we produce will eventually harm the environment and ourselves, and it is increasingly urgent for people to find a way to solve plastic pollution.

In recent years, countries around the world have introduced "plastic restriction policies". But a complete ban on the use of plastic will cause all kinds of inconvenience to our lives. So, is there an alternative?

Replacing ordinary plastics with degradable plastics is an important method for human beings to deal with "white pollution". By optimizing the selection of production raw materials and production process, under the combined action of sun, rain and microorganisms for several days or months, it can be gradually decomposed into fragments, and finally all degraded. Or will become the "white pollution" terminator.

The 100 billion market has broad prospects

The demand for degradable plastics is growing steadily, and the potential demand space is huge. HIS predicts that the global demand will increase to 550,000 tons by 2023, and its total potential demand space in key application fields is about 10.17 million tons. The biodegradable plastic market in the next 10 years The scale is expected to exceed one hundred billion! In the mobile phone case industry, the concept of biodegradability is also a research hotspot, with more and more broad development prospects!

"Plastic reduction" from the source - Taisheng degradable products

The raw materials of Taisheng's degradable products are mixed with PLA (polylactic acid), PBAT and plant fibers that can be completely decomposed into water and carbon dioxide under industrial composting conditions. Degradation can be completed in 180 days under suitable temperature and humidity conditions.

Polylactic acid (PLA) is polymerized from lactide monomers extracted from plant sugars and has a hard texture. In order to restore the flexibility of the TPU soft shell, we use the same degradable PBAT material for mixing to increase the softness of the product. Make the finished product both environmentally friendly and practical.

Third-party agency certification

We do not use semi-degradation as full-degradation. Our products can apply for full-degradation certification and bio-based certification, and can withstand various tests by domestic and foreign authoritative institutions.

Even the smallest force can change the world. Let's take action and replace traditional plastics with degradable materials, starting with the replacement of mobile phone cases.
