What is the PLA?

1. PLA (Polylactic acid) is a thermoplastic polyester with backbone formula with backbone formula (C3H4O2)n or [–C(CH3)HC(=O)O–]n.

2. The PLA is typically made from fermented plant starch such as from corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp.

3. PLA products look and feel like traditional petroleum-based plastic, but they are 100% biodegradable and compostable.

What is the difference between regular plastic and PLA?

1. Regular plastic is made from petroleum that is pollutant and have toxins; while PLA is from derived from corn based resin, which is non-toxic and renewable resource.

2. Regular plastic takes approximately 400 years to degrade, leaving toxicity in the environment. PLA plastic biodegrades in less than 90 days, and it is 100% biodegradable and compostable. It meets BPI Compostability standards.

3. Regular plastic can be recycled or thrown away. PLA plastic can’t be recycled – will biodegrade in less than 90 days in a commercial composting facility. It will take longer at home composting facility.

What are the Benefits of PLA material?

1. Composting
PLA is biodegradable under industrial composting conditions. Under these conditions(40-50℃), PLA can decompose into water and carbon dioxide in 50-90 days.

2. Recycling
PLA has SPI resin ID code 7, which can be eight chemical or mechanical. End-of-life PLA can be chemically recycled to methyl lactate by trans esterification.

3. Incineration
PLA can be incinerated without releasing any toxic chemicals.
