With the accelerated pace of human life, disposable tableware has gradually entered the fast food business. Since the first use of disposable tableware in China in 1984, foamed plastic tableware with polystyrene (eps) as the main raw material has spread all over the country and entered people's daily life, forming a huge consumer market. According to statistics, at present, China consumes about 10 billion fast food appliances each year, most of which are disposable foam plastic tableware, and grow at a rate of 25% per year.
Due to the non-degradable nature of polystyrene, it is difficult to recycle and other disadvantages, which brings great inconvenience to the processing work.
Currently in the streets and alleys of China's cities, tourist attractions, railways along the rivers and lakes. This kind of discarded disposable tableware can be seen everywhere, which is shocking and causes serious pollution to the environment. This kind of "white pollution" not only increases the labor intensity of sanitation workers, but also brings visual pollution to people. It is increasingly polluting the land resources and water resources that we depend on, and it also brings a lot of people. Inconvenience and harm.
It is gratifying that China has done a lot of work in this area and has achieved great results. With the scientific guidance and strong support of the government, various environmental tableware has emerged. To good social effects.
The disposable corn starch tableware produced by Hengfeng is a healthy and environmentally friendly tableware, as sugarcane tableware. The corn starch tableware is a biodegradable product. It is made from corn starch as the main raw material and processed by high-tech production process. The natural conditions can be degraded by itself, avoiding the environment. Pollution, saving non-renewable resources such as oil, has been tested by the national authoritative testing department, and all sanitary and physical and chemical indicators have reached national standards. It is an ideal substitute for the “disinfected tableware” that is widely used in the catering market.
Cornstarch tableware is a biodegradable product. It uses corn starch as the main raw material and is processed through high-tech production technology. It can be degraded by itself under natural conditions, avoiding environmental pollution and saving non-renewable resources such as petroleum. According to the inspection by the national authoritative inspection department, all the physical and chemical indicators of hygiene have reached the national standards, and it is an ideal substitute for the disinfection tableware commonly used in the catering market. Corn starch and biodegradable tableware are pollution-free green products for human survival and environmental protection.
Corn starch is made from the polymerization of grape molecules and is the more common storage form of carbohydrates in cells. In addition to food, it is industrially used for the manufacture of dextrin, maltose, glucose, alcohol, etc. It can also be used for conditioning flower pulp, textile sizing, paper sizing, and pharmaceutical tablet compression.
The general formula of corn starch is C6H10O5, and maltose is hydrolyzed to the disaccharide stage. The chemical formula is C12H22O11. After complete hydrolysis, glucose is obtained. The chemical formula is C6H12O6. It is divided into two types: amylose and amylopectin. Blue, amylopectin turns purple when it meets iodine.
Pollution-free, because it is refined from corn starch and other environmentally friendly materials, it does not contain any harmful substances to the human body, so it can be used for a long time with confidence.
