The division, based in Houston, Texas, will begin selling plant-based biodegradable plastic compounds in the United States
Kaneka Americas Holding, inc. is pleased to announce the creation of a new Biopolymers Division in Houston, Texas.
Bell PHBH is a plant-based product with flexibility and heat resistance.
PHBH is produced by a new bio-fermentation process using renewable vegetable oils.
Our products are not only bio-based, but also biocompostable in aerobic, anaerobic/Marine environments.
The degradation capacity of our products is very stable under daily use conditions.
Under the right conditions, whether in natural anaerobic and aerobic conditions or in Marine conditions, our products can begin to biodegrade.
PHBH has received FDA Food Contact Approval for all Food packaging products.
PHBH can be used to make cups, cutlery, food trays, plates and many other products.
Bell has been producing PHBH since 2011 and is expanding its production facility in Japan's gaosha region.
Chung hopes to find alternative solutions for existing single-use plastic products and recognizes the need to bring a plant-based product to market that will help reduce Marine and landfill pollution.
It is now estimated that about 8 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans every year, which has created huge environmental problems in the world's oceans.
