Nestle has a strong interest in the research and development of second-generation bioplastics

bioplastics are not only environmentally friendly, but also very adaptable to the body. It is expected to be used in the production of postoperative sutures and other medical products that can be absorbed by the body. Nestle is interested in developing second-generation bioplastics, such as bioplastics made from agricultural and forestry by-products or food chain by-products (such as molasses or bagasse) and non food raw materials (such as algae, cellulose and waste)

Nestle recently announced that it would join hands with the World Wide Fund for nature (WWF) and seven consumer companies to encourage the negative development of bioplastics derived from plant materials. In addition to Nestle, BFA also includes Coca Cola, Danone, Ford, Heinz, Nike, P & G and Unilever

global consumers are looking for sustainable products as oil substitutes. BFA is committed to negatively guiding the selection and harvesting of agricultural raw materials (such as sugarcane, corn, reed and switchgrass) for bioplastics. BFA plans to unite leading experts from industry, academia and civil society to jointly develop and support information science, cooperation, education and innovation, and help guide the evaluation and sustainable development of materials that can be made into bioplastics

anneroulin, global sustainable R & D Manager of Nestle, said: joining BFA means that we will be able to help the bioplastics industry create a more sustainable future, and solve the problems of land use, food safety and biodiversity due to the close connection between China's extruder products and strategic new industries

erinsimon from WWF said that ensuring that crops are used negatively to produce bioplastics is an important protection goal. By 2050, the global population will grow rapidly, and it will be particularly important to ensure adequate food. Bioplastics made from sugarcane and other plant materials have been used in Nestle products. For example, 2 convenient for local connection between laboratories at the beginning of 2012, Nestle Vittel bottled water of various specifications has adopted innovative PET packaging bottles, which are made of 30% plant materials

however, due to the short development time of bio based materials in China, many products still do not have high service life standards and test methods, while the fatigue standards and test evaluation systems called metals in foreign countries were formulated relatively early. Therefore, in terms of bio based content and biodegradable performance, domestic products often encounter barriers when exporting. China's biodegradable plastics industry is still in its infancy. It is still difficult for enterprises to make profits immediately. It also needs a certain process to accept the market and consumers. However, the environmental protection cause still needs the government to pay the bill after all
