China’s new plastics ban in Jilin province boosts bioplastics sectorPosted on January 15, 2015 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
A new ban on non-biodegradable plastic bags and food service items is creating an unprecedented surge for bioplastics manufacturing in China. Unlike China’s nationwide plastic bag ban, which has been widely recognized as ineffectively enforced since its launch in June 2008, Jilin province’s new ban so far seems to be in full force and making real impact in the region.
They are still not talking about how they are going to get rid of the compostable plastic material. PLA will not biodegrade outside a commercial compost facility.
