The arrival of new technologies is coinciding with renewed enthusiasm for greater sustainability from key participants within the packaging industry.
Recyclable : It is a process of converting material in something new of the waste material,in which it includes kind of materials like plastic,paper,cardboard,tires,batteries and many more.recycling of a material would produce a fresh supply of the same material. The material is collected in various methods and delivered to a facility where it undergoes re-manufacturing so that it can be in the production of a new materials or products.recyclate quality is generally referring to how much of the raw material is made up of target material compared to the amount of non-target material and other non-recyclable material.
Biodegradable : This technology has become a highly developed market in product packaging,production and medicine.by combining plastic products with very large polymer molecules ,which contains only carbon and hydrogen ,with oxygen in the air , the product is rendered capable of decomposing from everywhere from like a week to one to two years.biodegradable material is capable of decomposing without an oxygen source into carbon dioxide and water but the timeline is not specifically defined.
Compostable : Composting is a process used for resource recovery it can recycle an unwanted by product from another process into a useful new product,this process recycles various organic materials otherwise regarded as a waste product and produces a soil conditioner. Composting also can take place as a multi-step, closely monitored process with measured inputs of water,air,and carbon – and nitrogen- rich materials.it can therefore be used to recycle organic material.composting can destroy the unwanted seeds.unwanted living plants can be discouraged by covering with mulch.compost can be used to increase plant immunity to disease and pests.
Renewable : renewable resources is one that can be used repeatedly and does not run out because it is naturally replaced. A renewable resources essentially has an endless supply such as solar energy,wind energy and geothermal pressure.renewable materials are organic materials they contain carbon.this features gives renewable materials some significant common characteristics.
