PLA bottles and HPP

Blogs - PLA (Poly lactic-acid)

The world of bio-plastics – PLA (Poly lactic-acid) is not standing still. Every day, every week, and every month new ideas are developed and new products are created, materials, and methods to make the world more sustainable.

The purpose of the blogs about PLA (Poly lactic-acid) and other bio-plastics is to familiarize you as a reader with bio-plastics and the existing and new applications that exist.
Every day we are busy developing new ways to make our products even better. Together with our partners all over the world, we are making great strides.
Some groundbreaking, others more general, but no less important. So keep coming back to the blog page and see what’s new.

LOWER CO2

Our PLA bottles have a lower CO2 footprint than fossil plastic bottles.

15+ years experience

In 2004 we started with the first PLA milk bottle in the world.

icon

No petroleum

100% plant-based bottles, no petroleum resources are needed for production.

icon

100% plant-based

Our biodegradable bottles, caps and labels are 100% plant-based.

icon

Circular environment

Our PLA bottles are recycle, compostable and safe to burn.

NON-GMO

Only non GMO raw materials are used for our bottles, caps and labels are used .

The aim of the present PET – PLA bottle HPP treatment study is to assess the use of PLA polylactic acid bottles as an alternative to PET ones for high-pressure processing (HPP) of apple juice.

The term “bioplastic” refers to a plastic substance that is (wholly or partly) based on organic biomass instead of petroleum. Many bioplastics are biodegradable, which – in theory – is one of their biggest advantages.

Bioplastics fit well in a circular economy, especially if they are recycled as much as possible at the end of their lifespan (CE Delft, 2017a). Some bioplastics, such as bio-PET and bio-PE, are already partially recycled.

15,000,000+

For 2022 our goal is to supply our partners with more than 15,000,000 bottles, caps, and labels. 

The study compares the environmental impacts of 500 ml water bottles produced from corn-based polylactide – Poly lactic acid (plant-based bottles) and PET.

This study aims to calculate the water and land footprint of bioplastics in several scenarios where all plastics are bio-based and assume different types of biomaterials and recycling rates.

Our biodegradable water bottles  are, as far as we know, the only bottles that are completely 100% plant-based. Our bottle, CAP, and label is from 100% plant-based material.

The aim of this work is twofold: first, to analyse what might be the best end-of-life (EOL) option for PLA food packaging with food content and second, to determine which life cycle stage has the biggest impact.

ASTM D6400 is the standard specification for solid material biodegradation (by composting) required for the labeling of plastics designed to be aerobically composted in municipal or industrial facilities.

We make bottles differently

Petroleum-based, single-use plastics such as bottles, caps, straws, and food utensils, clog landfills and contaminate our landscapes and watersheds.

We are dedicated to reducing the usage of environmentally-unsound, single-use plastics. We utilize only non-GMO, plant-based PLA resins for manufacturing our unique biodegradable bottles.

As a result, all of our containers can be disposed of through industrial composting. Or be recycled, incinerated
