Analysis of the current situation and prospects of environmentally friendly tableware!
In the face of increasingly prominent environmental problems, self-degradable daily necessities have attracted a lot of attention. Disposable tableware including paper, wood, straw, corn starch, and biodegradable plastics have also attracted public interest. However, people It was found that the use of disposable chopsticks and other wooden tableware is restricted due to the waste of resources, while other degradable tableware is not popularized at present. Instead, crystal tableware has been promoted with high recycling value. Let’s analyze it together. Current status and prospects of disposable environmentally friendly tableware.
Disposable degradable tableware currently faces problems such as insufficient practicability and high manufacturing cost. As food containers, tableware’s waterproof, acid and alkali resistance and oil-salt resistance are the basic requirements, but whether it is straw or corn starch itself The water resistance is relatively poor, and the strength is insufficient. In order to improve performance, additives must be added. These additives must meet the requirements of food grade and increase the cost. Even so, they are still insufficient in waterproof and anti-permeability issues, and usually cannot be used for too long. Time will be destroyed.
The cost of degradable plastics is higher, and it is still in the research and development test stage. Its degradation conditions are relatively harsh. For example, photosensitive degradation needs to be carried out in the sun. It is inconvenient to use and handle as disposable tableware. Therefore, at present, The disposable crystal meal that is easy to recycle and the same environmental protection is reasonable. It is undeniable that the degradable materials will gradually be optimized and transformed in the future. When the use requirements and cost issues are solved, it will become the main trend of popular daily necessities. It is also expected that these products can bring changes to the environment and life.
