As we all know that the plastic become the very serious pollution all over the world, especially for the plastic bags, plastic containers and the daily using packing for our life. it pollute the air and water for many places and many people ask and use the biodegradable plastic injection molding production to instead of the normal plastic.
The most common types of biodegradable plastic resins used in plastic injection molding are:
Thermoplastic Starch-based Plastics (TPS)
Polylactic Acid (PLA)
Polybutylene Succinate (PBS)
This project is an innovational bioplastic injection molding housing for our customer. the part are used for some healthcare production with high volume. after the long time discussion with our customer and material vendor, Asia Billion learn and try the new technology for bioplastic injection molding.

Biodegradable plastic refers to a type of plastic that is degraded by the action of microorganisms in nature such as bacteria, mold (fungi) and algae. The ideal biodegradable plastic is a kind of polymer material with excellent performance, can be completely decomposed by environmental microorganisms after being discarded, and finally inorganicized to become a component of the carbon cycle in nature. "Paper" is a typical biodegradable material, while "synthetic plastic" is a typical polymer material. Therefore, biodegradable plastics are polymer materials with the properties of both "paper" and "synthetic plastic".
Because of its good degradability, biodegradable plastics are mainly used as food soft and hard packaging materials, which is also its biggest application field at this stage.
The main target markets for biodegradable plastics are plastic packaging films, agricultural films, disposable plastic bags and disposable plastic tableware. Compared with traditional plastic packaging materials, the cost of new degradable materials is slightly higher. However, with the increasing awareness of environmental protection, people are willing to use new degradable materials with slightly higher prices to protect the environment. The increased awareness of environmental protection has brought huge development opportunities to the biodegradable new material industry. With the development of China’s economy, the successful hosting of the Olympics, World Expos and other large-scale events that shocked the world, the need for the protection of various world cultural heritage and national scenic spots, the environmental pollution caused by plastics has become more and more important. List the treatment of white pollution as one of the key tasks.
Developed countries and regions such as Europe, the United States, and Japan have successively formulated and promulgated relevant laws and regulations to restrict the use of non-degradable plastics through measures such as partial prohibition, restriction, mandatory collection, and collection of pollution taxes, and vigorously develop new biodegradable materials to protect the environment , Protect the soil. Among them, France issued a policy in 2005 that all disposable plastic bags that can be carried must be biodegradable after 2010.
At the same time, China has successively introduced a number of policies to encourage the application and promotion of biodegradable plastics. In 2004, the National People’s Congress passed the "Renewable Energy Law (Draft)" and "Solid Waste Law (Revision)" to encourage the use of renewable biomass energy and the promotion and application of degradable plastics; in 2005, the National Development and Reform Commission document No. 40 clearly encouraged The use and promotion of biodegradable plastics; in 2006, the National Development and Reform Commission launched a special fund project on the promotion of the development of biomass biodegradable materials; the "Define, Classification, Labeling and Degradability Requirements for Degradable Plastics" implemented on January 1, 2007 were obtained The mutual recognition of Europe, the United States, Japan and other countries has facilitated the export of Chinese enterprises.
Biodegradable plastic market situation:
By 2019, the market value of the biodegradable plastics industry will grow to US$3.477 billion with an average annual growth rate of 13.01%. The European biodegradable plastics market is expected to grow at an average annual growth rate of 12% from 2014 to 2019.
Biodegradable plastics usher in a period of rapid development. Although the concept of biodegradable plastics has been hyped up before, the application has not been able to increase the volume.
Bioplastics are mainly used in packaging, fiber, agriculture, injection molding and other fields. Among them, it is the most widely used in the packaging industry. In 2013, it accounted for about 60% of the total market. The demand for food packaging accounted for more than 70% of the biodegradable plastic packaging market. ; The injection molding application market is the main driving force for the growth of demand for biodegradable plastics.
As of the end of 2013, Europe and the United States are the main markets for biodegradable plastics. According to statistics, biodegradable plastics in Europe and North America accounted for 54% and 28% of the global market in 2013.
The Environmental Committee of the European Parliament has passed a draft on reducing the use of disposable lightweight plastic bags. The draft proposes that the 28 EU member states should follow a two-step approach to effectively reduce the use of plastic bags in order to achieve the goal of reducing the use of ultra-thin plastic bags by 80% in 2019 compared to 2010. This resolution is expected to greatly stimulate the market demand for biodegradable plastics, and is expected to create huge growth opportunities for related manufacturers in the next five years.
