Green kitchenware: A future trend for our green planet



Chinese scientists have just introduced a line of dishes made from bamboo and biodegradable bagasse. This type of utensils are not harmful to the environment because they are made from organic materials and decompose in the soil after 45-60 days.  Meanwhile, plastic products are dumped around the planet and oceans have a decomposition time of up to 450 years.

 “Green"  dishes emit 97% less CO2 than plastic and 65% less than products made from biodegradable paper and plastic.

 Experts have long been looking for a convenient alternative to plastic.  According to Matter Magazine, the aforementioned new "green" kitchen utensils are different from known ingredients that are typically obtained mainly through processing in that they are of higher purity and non-toxic.  

The researchers added long, tough bamboo fibers to bagasse pulp obtained after processing food that has been finely ground and pressed;  Only one chemical is used in the manufacturing process to increase the water and grease resistance of the dishes - the environmentally friendly alkyl ketene dimer (AKD) waterproof.  This structural connection ensures the product is water resistant.  According to the developers, “green” dishes emit 97% less CO2 than plastic and 65% less than products made from biodegradable paper and plastic.

In addition, in one of the major retail chains recently appeared packaging products made from corn starch, which also completely decomposes in the ground.
