Imagine living in a world without tons of landfill petroleum plastic releasing methane gas into our atmosphere. Imagine petroleum plastic water bottles, syringes, food containers no longer leaching cancer-causing toxins and heavy metals into their contents. Imagine most people being free from the cancers, tumors, birth defects and other side effects that have been attributed to our petroleum plastic world. Sound too good to be true? The damage that has been done to us and our environment is almost irreversible, but it is not too late. It's time to reduce our dependency on oil.
Bioplastics International offers a large assortment of bio resins from corn, sugarcane, potatoes, sugar beets, and many other plant starches. Our bioplastic resins are sustainable, renewable, and compostable. As a solutions provider, we offer the largest selection of bioplastic resins in the world. No need to call a large number of companies to find the resins you need, we are the representative for many bioplastic resin manufacturers worldwide. We specialize in the creation of custom bioplastic resins, for almost any product.
We also offer an organic, microbial, biodegradable additive, to be added at 1% to any plastic resin, PE, PET, PP, PC, PS, PVC, or Rubber. FDA and EU approved for food contact, FTC and REACH compliant. Recyclable, heat and cold resistant, indefinate shelf life. Your products will legally be biodegradable. This is a one of a kind pure organic additive, no toxins or heavy metals. No fragmenting, or toxic residues, as with other additives. Certified biodegradable with ASTM D5511 and ASTM D5526.
Bioplastics are not a fad. The use of bioplastics is a movement, backed by an ever-growing tidal wave of consumer interest and government mandates. Many countries around the world have acknowledged the toxic effects of petroleum plastic on the environment and on their citizens and have taken measures to address these urgent concerns. Mexico City, Dubai, Taiwan, Delhi, Rio de Janeiro as well as many American cities have already banned petroleum plastic bags. Europe has banned all petroleum plastics containing the toxin Bisphenol A, and many more petroleum plastic products are expected to be banned worldwide in the near future.
The plastics industry is a highly profitable one. Is it right that we destroy our atmosphere, soil, freshwater resources, and poison our current and future human and animal populations because of corporate greed when a viable business alternative exists? We don't think so. We hope you will join our movement, and help bring bioplastics to the world.
Bioplatics International was created to simplify the search for bioplastic resins. There are hundreds of resin manufacturers throughout the planet, each designed for specific products. Your search may take up to a year. As we have partnered with many resin companies, we can locate the resins you need very quickly. The resins we represent will leach no contaminates, will burn safely and will not release dioxins into the atmosphere. They will be safer for the environment, and for the consumers who use them.
Based on your bio resin requirements, we will partner you with the best possible bio resin manufacturer to meet your needs. Leave the lengthy searching to us. We are the exclusive representative to many bio resin companies, from USA, Europe, Mexico, China, Malasia, South Korea, India, and many others. Regardless of the molding process, production in your current facility will be flawless, requiring only minor modifications, if any. We have spent years locating and partnering with most bioplastic resin manufacturers of the world, and have negociated the best prices. Our specialty is custom made bio resins, for almost any product. We also have the finest organic, biodegradable additive in the world.
Many chemical additives that give plastic products desirable performance properties also have negative environmental and human health effects.
These effects include:
- Direct toxicity, as the cases of lead, cadmim, and mercury.
- Carcinogens, as in the case of diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP).
- Endocrine disruption, which can lead to cancers, birth defects, immune system suppression, and developmental problems in children.
- Because phthalates are not chemically bound to the plastic polymer, they can easily migrate out.
The heavy metal antimony is activated by heat, such as when water bottles are left in a car, suntan oil bottles are left in the sun, or plastics are heated in a microwave. Antimony has an effect on humans almost identical to arsenic.
The decomposition process of petroleum plastics in landfills emits methane gas into our atmosphere for approximately one thousand years. Methane gas is four times more toxic than what comes out of the exhaust pipe of an automobile. Once in our atmosphere methane gas oxidizes to carbon dioxide gas. Carbon dioxide gas has a half life of seven years, which means it will remain for many years after the oxidation process. Carbon dioxide gas retains heat at twenty times the rate of oxygen. This can be an influence on the changing weather patterns of the planet.
In addition to petroleum plastic contaminating our soil and underground water sources for centuries, many countries continue to incinerate plastics.
- Billions of pounds of petroleum plastic including hospital waste, is incinerated annually.
- Incinerated plastic is one of the leading sources of furans and dioxins, known cancer causing agents.
- Dioxins represent a family of seventy five toxic chemicals, one of which occur naturally. They are produced when petroleum plastic is burned.
- Dioxins float in our atmosphere for thousands of miles. They eventually settle in our soil, water, grass, and crops.
- Cows eat the grass, and store dioxins in their fat.
- Dioxins are considered by many scientists to be among the worst toxins in the world. So potent are these chemicals that they are referred to as the 'Darth Vader of toxic chemicals' by Epidemiologist Richard Clapp of Boston University's School of Public Health.
- Dioxins are now a global threat. The EPA found that dioxins not only were carcinogenic and also can cause severe health disorders such as birth defects as well as reproductive and immune system disorders.
- It is not too late to reverse the damage already done to our environment and to our bodies, but it is important that we begin now to reverse these trends.
The recycling of petroleum plastic has a dark side, one little known to most consumers. The majority of the plastics we recycle, regardless of type, end up in China, where worker safety standards are virtually non existent and materials are processed under dirty, primitive conditions. Consumers may falsely believe that 'recycling' our plastics through curbside pickup is an important way to help save our environment. However, consumers should be aware of the fact that plastic disposed of in this way is not truly recycled. Plastics recycled this way can only be used a few more times, if at all, before being discarded, often by being shipped to developing countries that must accept our garbage for the income it provides.
The unfortunate truth is that most petroleum plastics cannot be effectively recycled. So although a given yogurt cup may have a logo on the bottom of the 'chasing arrow' symbol signifying 'recyclability', it may still not be truly recyclable. Actually, the designation on the bottom of any given product is useful only to designate the type of plastic from which it is manufactured. As the degradation of petroleum plastic in the recycling process is severe, 'virgin' petroleum resin must always be added in future incarnations of 'recycled' plastic products. For water bottles alone, approximately 70% of virgin resin must be added to make an additional 'generation' of bottles.
Many items cannot be recycled at all, such as containers for sour cream, cottage cheese, butter, frozen meals, pet food bags, garbage bags, plates, and eating utensils, cups and lids, to name a few.
