  With the exception of partially non-degradable bio-based materials, biodegradable plastics are generally compostable plastics. In other words, only return to the composting plant, not recycle.


  First, the EU is worried that the comprehensive approval of biodegradable plastics will make consumers mistakenly believe that the development trend of the whole society is still following the old path of disposables. Although the biodegradation industry does not encourage littering, and biodegradation does not necessarily have to be thrown away, if it is not guided, it will easily mislead consumers. Many people think that biodegradable products will disappear when they are thrown away, which is very environmentally friendly. In fact, the biodegradation industry does not advocate littering, but instead composts together with kitchen waste to feed back agriculture.

  Second, in order to be able to degrade quickly within half a year, most biodegradable products are designed to have a short service life, and their mechanical properties will deteriorate rapidly. Not only can they not be recycled, but they are mixed into traditional plastics and affect the recycling of traditional petroleum-based plastics. The European Union advocates recycling and reuse. If biodegradable materials are only suitable for disposable products, such as disposable clothes, water glasses and tableware, although the products can be biodegradable, they do not conform to the EU's concept of promoting vegetarianism.

  Third, at this stage, the cost of biodegradable materials is still high and consumes a lot of resources. If a large number of products are disposable after use, it is not economically feasible and has the disadvantage of not being resource-intensive. Therefore, the European Union is worried that the large-scale development of bioplastics will affect the development of resource intensive development.

  Therefore, the deep meaning of the European Union's "Framework" is that the development of bioplastics should not affect the construction of a resource-intensive society. What the EU opposes is not biodegradation, but the waste of resources.
