Cassava bag Indonesia is a biodegradable alternative to bag plastics. In 2018, an Indonesian company created a cassava bag. This edible plastic bag is made of cassava roots. Of course, it is 100% natural compostable bag and can return to natural matter when it is disposed of in worm farm, industrial composter, or home composter. Today, it is growing more popular due to its non-toxicity and durability. For your information, cassava belongs to a staple of diets in African, Latin American, and Asian countries because a vegetable root grows easily with many uses including for eating and manufacturing.
Since it contains large amounts of starch, cassava becomes an excellent bioplastic. Besides that, cassava is also starchy, ‘nutty’ flavored, as well as provides a great source of calories & carbohydrates. In addition, it contains more folate, vit. A, vit. B2, and vit. E than potatoes. Even more, it is very versatile & easy to bake or cook with. It means, there’s a good opportunity for this to be the primary raw material to manufacture eco-friendly plastics (bioplastics). Furthermore, cassava plastic is safe as humans can eat it. It also dissolves in the water, making it safe for marine life. Anyway, cassava bag Indonesia is a good choice for anyone who cares about the environment.
How Is Cassava Bag Indonesia Plastic Made?
To create a cassava bag Indonesia, there are a few processes you will need to know. First, resin/pellets are melted under controlled temperature & pressure. After that, air is injected into the plastic extruding through a die in circular form for creating a tube. Then, tube is cut off when hot. It is stretched & inflated. Next, inflated bioplastic is cooled & made into rolls in order to convert to bags. Last, bioplastic tubing is fed to a machine rolling out the tube to the right length & heat sealed.
Is Cassava Bag Indonesia Biodegradable or Compostable?
A cassava bag Indonesia is compostable because it is made of 100% natural materials. Then, a compostable plastic means any bioplastic made of 100% natural components. It makes a cassava bag excellent for composting in a worm farm, industrial composter, or home composter because it will completely break down. In addition, it will deliver nutrient-rich soil, too. It is true that a cassava bag is non-toxic. But if you dispose of it in landfill, it will not break down fast. To take the benefits of this compostable plastic, you have to dispose of it rightly. Then, it will take the process of decomposing.
We can also call a compostable plastic a ‘next-generation’ plastic. To manufacture compostable plastic, it uses various materials. They include renewable materials: cellulose, lactic acid, tapioca starches, potato, soy protein, and corn. With these materials, it means that compostable plastics are not only non-toxic but can also decompose fast when composted. Since it is manufactured from raw materials, the process of manufacturing is more sustainable & environmentally friendly compared to traditional plastics. Besides no toxic fumes, the manufacturing process of cassava bag Indonesia also uses less water & electricity.
