In keeping with growing global trends, RMCL offers a whole range of eco friendly plastics RM GREEN - The Biodegradable Range of Products made from innovative Biodegradable Technology.
Plastics have contributed immensely to revolutionise packaging application and design for a variety of products. However, the chemical inertness of plastics which resulted in it remaining present in the environment for extended periods of time even after disposal, raised valid environmental concerns. To offer the environment conscious industry and consumers an alternative prompted the engineering of green plastics.
Biodegradable plastics are made from renewable resources, decrease the dependence on petroleum and reduce the amount of waste material, while still yielding a product that provides similar benefits of traditional plastics.
Under the flagship brand RM GREEN, RMCL Retail offers Biodegradable Bags made of Oxo-Biodegradable Plastic - an alternative to traditional plastic bags. Made from a proprietary biodegradable resin, these bags are non-toxic and eco-friendly.100% degradable in landfills and photo-degrading, unlike standard poly bags, these bags do not fragment but get consumed by micro-organisms and get biodegraded to CO2, water, humus, and trace elements.
RM GREEN also offers Polylactic Acid or Polylactide-PLA; a transparent plastic material made from fermented corn plant starch, tapioca roots, chips or starch and even sugarcane. This new age material, available in the form of granulates, can be used for the production of foil, moulds, cups and bottles. It can also be used for trays and containers for fruit, vegetables, eggs and meat, bottles for soft drinks and dairy products and blister foils for fruit and vegetables.
RM GREEN is also exploring applications where PLA can be used for packaging, paper coating, fibers, films, and other disposable articles. PLA also has exciting possibilities with future developments in barrier and thermal properties.
