Learn more about PLA bottles

The world of bioplastics (PLA) is not standing still. Every day, every week, and every month new ideas are developed and new products are created, materials, and methods to make the world more sustainable. The purpose of the blogs is to familiarize you as a reader with bio-plastics, in particular PLA, and the existing and new applications that exist. We produce PLA bottles for milk, juice and water in different neck sizes and different sizes of preforms.
Every day we are busy developing new ways to make our products even better. Together with our partners all over the world, we are making great strides.
There are several other topics that we would like to tell you more about. Some groundbreaking, others more general, but no less important. 

Fossil plastic pollution

The study compares the environmental impacts of 500 ml water bottles produced from corn-based polylactide – Poly lactic acid (plant-based bottles) and PET.
This specification ASTM standard covers plastics and products made from plastics that are designed to be composted in municipal and industrial aerobic composting facilities.
The aim of the PET – PLA bottles HPP treatment study is to assess the use of polylactic acid PLA bottles as an alternative to PET ones for high-pressure processing (HPP) of apple juice.
PLA bottles and the circular economy, so-called “waste streams” and products at the end of their useful life form the basis for new ones products, instead of being thrown away.
Bioplastics fit well in a circular economy, especially if they are recycled as much as possible at the end of their lifespan (CE Delft, 2017a). PLA bottles are easy to recycle.
In this study we provide up-to-date cradle-to-gate information on the environmental footprint of polylactic acid (PLA) produced in Thailand at a commercial scale, covering emerging topics such as water footprint and direct land-use change.
For several years now, there has been debate between the (organic) waste treatment companies and the companies producing compostable plastics, organised in Holland Bioplastics (HB) about the acceptance of compostable (packaging) products in source separated municipal organic waste (GFT)
The growing number of plastic products and packaging marketed as ‘biodegradable’ or ‘(home) compostable’ raises the question of the extent to which biodegradability and (home) compostability of plastic is beneficial in the context of the transition towards a circular economy.
Biodegradable water bottles from are, as far as we know, the only PLA bottles that are completely 100% plant-based. We have a bottle, CAP, and label that is made from 100% plant-based material.
The aim of this work is twofold: first, to analyse what might be the best end-of-life (EOL) option for PLA food packaging with food content and second, to determine which life cycle stage has the biggest impact.
The term “bioplastic” refers to a plastic substance that is (wholly or partly) based on organic biomass instead of petroleum. Many bioplastics are biodegradable, which – in theory – is one of their biggest advantages (more on this later)

Are bioplastics a sustainable solution

Vivian discusses what is a bioplastic, if it’s a sustainable solution for us, and how to work together to create a more sustainable Earth. Vivian is a 15-year-old advocate for mental health and the environment through volunteering.
