PHA Plastic Packaging vs PCR Plastics Packaging
Do you know the difference?
1. Biodegradability: PHA plastic is biodegradable, which means that it can break down into natural elements in the environment without leaving harmful residue or microplastics behind. In contrast, PCR plastics can only be recycled a limited number of times and eventually end up in landfills or the ocean, where they can take hundreds of years to decompose polluting the environment with microplastics and harmful chemicals.
2. Eco-Friendly: PHA plastic is made from renewable sources such as plant oils, which means that it is less harmful to the environment than PCR plastics, which are made from non-renewable sources like petroleum. PHA plastic also requires less energy to produce and emits fewer greenhouse gases during production.
3. Home Compostable: PHA plastic is home compostable, which means that it can be broken down in a backyard compost pile or a municipal composting facility. In contrast, PCR plastics are not home compostable and can only be recycled in specialized facilities.
4. Sustainable Future: PHA plastic is a better choice for a sustainable future because it provides a circular solution for waste management. As a biodegradable and home-compostable material, it can be used to create products that can be safely returned to the environment. This contrasts with PCR plastics, which are often downcycled into lower-value products or disposed of in landfills.
5. Versatility: PHA plastic has the same properties as traditional plastics, making it a versatile material for a wide range of applications. PHA plastic can replace traditional plastics while offering the same level of functionality. This means that it is easier to switch to PHA plastic without compromising on quality or performance.
