Biodegradeable plastic bags

what is biodegradeable bags and the classification?
First, we are happy to announce that we became the owner of domin
In next articles, I will explain what is the difference of biodegradable vs compostable. In this page, I will let you know something about biodegradable plastic bags.
With the large demand of the market, many people have begun to purchase a large number of biodegradable bags, do you know what is biodegradable plastic bags?
From the selection of raw materials to the processing of the production process, biodegradable plastic bags will not pollute the environment, and can be recycled. The degradation of plastics refers to the end of the polymer life cycle and the reduction of molecular amount, which is manifested by brittleness, cracking, softening, hardening and loss of mechanical strength. The degradation of ordinary plastic bags can take decades or even hundreds of years. Landfill or incineration of non-biodegradable plastic bags will pollute the environment. In order to protect the environment, the use of biodegradable plastic bags is a great invention. Biodegradable plastic bags are plastic bags that are easily degraded in the natural environment by adding a certain number of additives (such as starch, denatured starch or other cellulose, photosensitizer, biodegradation agent, etc.) in the production process

What kinds of biodegradable plastic bags are there?
1. Photodegradable plastic bags 
A photosensitizer is added to the plastic to gradually break it down under sunlight. It belongs to the earlier generation of degradable plastics, and its disadvantage is that the degradation time is unpredictable due to sunshine and climate change, so it is impossible to control the degradation time. 
2. Biodegradable plastic bags 
Plastics that can be completely decomposed into low molecular compounds under the action of microorganisms. Its characteristics are convenient storage and transportation, as long as keep dry, do not need to avoid light, a wide range of applications, not only can be used for agricultural plastic film, packaging bags, and widely used in the field of medicine. With the development of modern biotechnology, biodegradable plastics have been gained more and more attention and become a new hot spot in research and 
3. Light/biodegradable plastic bags 
Photodegradation and microbial combination of a class of plastic, it has both light and microbial degradation of plastic characteristics. 
4, water degradation plastic bags 
Add water absorbent material in plastic, after use, discard in water can dissolve, mainly used in medicine and health appliances (such as medical gloves), easy to destroy and disinfection.
Let’s focus on the biodegrade bags which in most commonly available in the market for packing or retail industry, which is the 2nd kind I mentioned in above. Biodegradable bags or compostable bags has its life span. It is recommended to store in a dry environment away from light, with a shelf life of 12-18 months. After the shelf life, there might be natural degradation phenomenon, plastic bags will be covered with “snow”, cannot be used. Under compost conditions, even newly produced degradable plastic bags can be completely degraded in just a few months.
