    We are a New Zealand water company (Aqua Naida Limited) that has recently launched an initiative in PLA plant bottles and resin, we have invested into the establishment of a quality control and international supply structure from China to our plants and customer base in the hotel and retail industry.

    The key issue around introducing PLA plant materials into the bottled water industry appears to be the lack of infrastructure in recycling plant material accross the board, i.e. there seems to be no standardisation in how plant material utilised in bio plastics can be recycled effectlvely. In many cases it disrupts the PET recycling process when PLA bottles are inadvertently mixed with PET in recycling centers.

    Are there any initiatives being developed to recycle or effectively consolidate and compost biodegradable plant material products?

    Regards and thank you
    Aqua Naida Limited PLA Dpt.

    Thanks a lot for you question,

    There are a least three companies you may think of to discuss this issue (PLLA chemical/physical recycling + composting):

    LooPLA: http://www.loopla.org/ (in Belgium)

    BioCor LLC and Plarco Inc. http://biocor.org/ (in the US)

    RE|PLA Cycle GmbH http://reclay-group.com/en/np/companies/repla-cycle-gmbh/about-repla-cycle-gmbh/ (in germany)

    Concerning composting, see european bioplastic association last release: http://en.european-bioplastics.org/blog/2012/02/21/composting-certification-network/

    Best regards,

Thank you for your help. Best regards Dr. Laszlo Kondor, Managing Director of KEMIA GmbH, Vienna, Austria

  10. Dear Dr. Laszlo Kondor,
