Changing the Market with Bioplastics
Biotechnology Hydal is unique technology which process used cooking oil into PHB type of bioplastics. PHB is subgroup of PHA bioplastics and is well known for its high quality properties, as well it’s good biodegradability. Currently, biotechnology Hydal is only available technology in the world for the mass production which can convert waste into PHB bioplastics.
Our technology address two major challenges: how to recycle cost effectively used cooking oil and how to provide cheap feedstock for the bioplastic production.
Our kind of bioplastics is made from toxic waste and unlike other types of biodegradable bioplastics does not require agricultural feedstock, such as corn, potato, sugar cane or sugar beet. Currently, there is greater demand then is supply for bioplastics, however due to cost of agricultural feedstock, decline of agricultural land and water scarcity, large increase in production of bioplastics from agricultural feedstock might come along with high ecological and production costs.
On the other hand, large agglomerations and densely populated areas consume large quantities of cooking oil every day. Used cooking oil is toxic waste and in many countries, must be collected and then expensively processed to low efficient biofuel or is costly recycled.
Hydal brings solution not only for recycling of used cooking oil but also in finding a cheap feedstock which doesn’t increase exploitation of natural capital for production of bioplastics. Our concept of processing toxic waste into eco- friendly bioplastics goes along with development vision of 21st century of Zero Waste Management and Circular Economy.
