PROBLEM


In today’s modern world, plastics are used in every industry, with the purpose of improving our lives in countless ways.  For example, plastics that are designed for single use such as takeaway containers, cutleries and plastic bags are readily available in large quantities for our convenience and are known for its low cost, durability, flexibility and light weight. However, due to these same traits, an abundance of plastic products are thrown away every day, accumulating worldwide in our landfills, waterways, oceans and even as litter in our communities, causing irreversible damage to our environment due its non-biodegradable nature. Polystyrene, also widely known by its trademark name Styrofoam, can take up to 500 years to biodegrade. While polystyrene is still widely used in other packaging, especially for electrical items, the highest use and throw frequency for polystyrene is for food, which we ‘tapau’ every day. The issues are made worse with the significant growth of plastic consumption and disposal which far outpace efforts to recycle and produce degradable plastic materials. In Malaysia alone, about 33,000 tonnes of solid waste are disposed of every day and almost a quarter are plastic waste.




SOLUTION


While it is impossible to completely stop using plastic products as it has become an indispensable part of our daily lives, we can ensure that the products that we use on a daily basis such as food packaging are biodegradable.


WHY?

Plastics are synthetic materials derived from organic compounds (e.g. crude oil) and consist of polymers (i.e. extremely long molecule chains). As a result, plastics may take up to 1,000 years to break to organic state.

This is where Polyseed SSD Sdn. Bhd. (“Polyseed”) sets out to convert conventional plastics into biodegradable eco-friendly products using their patented green additives to make sure plastics don’t become permanent pollutants. In other words, Polyseed helps to ensure that our great-great grandchildren do not have to stumble onto endless amounts of buried plastics, including the cutleries that we are using today.




HOW DOES IT WORK?

The green additives are added during production of plastic products to accelerate the degradation by several orders of magnitude (i.e. 100’s to 1,000’s times faster), making the products degrade and physically disintegrate within a few months to several years, depending on the formulation (shelf life can be controlled at production) of the additive and the disposal conditions (i.e. degradation is triggered by exposure to sunlight (UV light), oxygen, and heat). No modification to the production process is required. Furthermore, the technology additives are made up of simple organic substances such as metal salts that build on the known structures of materials that induce polymer biodegradation. As such, they do not affect the performance of the plastics nor introduce toxic chemicals or prevent the products from being recycled in current channels as they have similar physical properties as regular products prior to the onset of degradation.


The overall process, from polymer to water, carbon dioxide and biomass is what is called, oxo-biodegradation.


The images below are examples of the process of the degradation rate for a biodegradable plastic bottle and biodegradable plastic bag:


Locally in Malaysia, many state governments are working to address the issue of plastic pollution. The following table illustrates the efforts of various state governments in addressing the issue of plastic waste:
