[China paint information] this product is the 2.0 version of the previous generation product. As early as April this year, the company announced that Jinan new period assaying Instrument Co., Ltd. has rich experience in the production of experimental machines, and the bio resin material researched and developed by the company has realized 100% biological raw materials. This means that its resin raw materials are no longer from petroleum but 100% made of biological materials. Therefore, it also realizes "complete degradation" in the real sense

it is reported that this product is PBS plastic produced in a factory in Thailand. Compared with durabio, a bio based polycarbonate material launched three years ago, this product has achieved the goal of 100% degradability. The comonomer of durabio is isosorbitol instead of traditional bisphenol A. But it is not biodegradable. This time, the company realized the coexistence of biodegradation and biomass to the maximum by adding new biomass monomers. It not only ensures the properties of plastics, but also makes them completely degradable. It has huge market potential in the field of plastic packaging containers

pbs resin is also known as polybutylene succinate resin. Polybutylene succinate resin is synthesized by condensation polymerization of adidas' environmentally friendly target acid and butylene glycol. It is easy to be decomposed and metabolized by a variety of microorganisms, animals and plants in nature, and finally decomposed into carbon dioxide and water. It is a typical fully biodegradable polymer material. Good biocompatibility and bioabsorbability; It entered the field of material research in the 1990s, and quickly became one of the hot research materials of universal biodegradable plastics that can be widely used. It has good heat resistance, and the thermal deformation temperature and product service temperature can exceed 100 ℃. Its synthetic raw materials can be obtained from petroleum resources or fermentation of biological resources. It is a leader in biodegradable plastic materials

on the other hand, this product is also a new measure to cope with the severe plastic restriction laws in Europe. Mitsubishi hopes to use this product as a substitute to enter the European market. The company originally planned to build a plant with an annual output of 100000 tons in the next five years and take it as the main business of the resin department. If it goes well, mass production can be achieved next year

related links: the European Commission recently submitted a draft proposal to set up a "blacklist" of disposable plastic products. In the future, disposable plastic products will be banned in the EU in order to curb the growing problem of marine pollution

there are 10 kinds of disposable plastic products in the "blacklist", including plastic tableware (straw, knife and fork, lunch box), disposable cotton swab rod, balloon and plastic rod, plastic cup and plastic bottle, plastic fishing gear, and food packaging bag, which are composed of a host, a control cabinet, a servo oil source, and a computer control system. The European Commission "pointed out that 70% of European Marine garbage comes from the above-mentioned products

it is reported that the EU plans to recycle 90% of disposable plastic products by 2025, and significantly reduce the proportion of "blacklist" products on the market until production is completely banned. In addition, the European Commission also recommended that Member States further strengthen the classification, treatment and recycling of plastic wastes and improve the utilization rate of plastic products
