Why choose NatureWorks™ PLA?
There are a number of sound environmental and economic reasons to choose
this eco-friendly polymer. Especially as it offers equal/better performance
than comparable petroleum-based polymers widely used within the packaging
(polylactide) is made from corn, in an environmentally friendly manufacturing
process. Plant sugars, extracted from the corn, are converted into plastic
through fermentation and separation processes. Corn is readily available
and is an annually renewable raw material, unlike petroleum. It takes
25-55% fewer fossil resources to produce PLA. PLA is greenhouse gas
neutral, emitting less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than petroleum-based
polymers; with the added bonus that carbon dioxide is removed from the
atmosphere as the corn is grown.
packaging products, at the end of their life-cycle, also have the advantage
of being fully compostable in industrial composting facilities, producing
harmless waste products of oxygen, water, inorganic compounds and organic
biomass which can be returned to the soil, and most importantly, leaving
no toxic residue.
NatureWorks™ PLA has certificate EN13432 for compostability
of packaging in Europe.
