What is the Difference Between Environmentally Friendly Biodegradable Straws and Plastic Straws?

Biodegradable straws refer to PLA straws in general. PBS is added to some high temperature resistant biodegradable straws. Both PLA and PBS are biodegradable raw materials, which effectively ensures the degradation performance of the final product. Biodegradable straw not only meets the degradable performance, but also is almost comparable to PP straw in taste.


1. Environmental protection biodegradable straw understanding


environmentally-friendly degradable straws are also called: biodegradable straws, PLA degradable straws, which are produced from PLA modified materials. The straws are polyester polymers polymerized from lactic acid as the main raw material, which belong to a new type of biodegradable material.


2. Characteristics of biodegradable straw


The plastic straws biodegradable of PLA has good biodegradability and can be completely degraded by microorganisms in nature after use, resulting in carbon dioxide and water, which does not pollute the environment and is very beneficial to environmental protection. It is recognized as an environment-friendly material.


3. The difference between biodegradable straw and plastic straw


PLA environmentally friendly degradable straw has a taste similar to traditional plastics; PLA polylactic acid environmentally friendly degradable straw uses starch as the main raw material, because starch is a biodegradable natural polymer, it decomposes into glucose under the action of microorganisms, and then decomposes It is water and carbon dioxide, and the final straw is also degradable; and the plastic straw is discarded after use, and the plastic straw cannot be degraded by nature, therefore, white pollution will be formed, causing harm to the environment.


4. Biodegradable straw market prospects and business opportunities


Under the pressure of both policies and environmental protection, many end users have replaced traditional plastic straws and paper straws with PLA straws. Many manufacturers have also transformed PLA straws and mass-produced PLA straws. It can be seen that pla has great market potential for biodegradable straws.


Of course, at present, combining various factors, PLA degradable straws have been widely recognized by everyone, and traditional PP straws and paper straws are also being phased out in the market.
