Ecocreation patented PLA consortium
This Ecocreation PLA consortium is a unique product which is capable of digesting PLA & PBAT packaging, PLA & PBAT disposables, or PLA & PBAT elements in other materials in 48 hours. PLA stands for polylactic acid and is one of the most widely used bio plastics for food and drink disposables.
The patent for the special PLA bacteria consortium has been recognised by the European Patent Office in Munich.
Continuous and intensive research has delivered a bacteria consortium which accelerates largely the natural phenomenon of biodegradable waste and PLA products. In fact, it makes the on-site biodegradation of PLA products truly possible. And the consortium optimizes the operation of fast digesting processes of organic waste, which eliminates the need for processing in any kind of industrial facility. The consortium has been developed con-jointly with the design and construction of the Ecocreation PLA machine for digesting organic waste and PLA products.
The PLA consortium and the Ecocreation PLA machine can be used for the recovery of organic waste in combination with PLA based disposable food and drink products and packaging.
This opens up huge opportunities for the Out Of Home market, which includes Food Service; Quick Service Restaurants, Hotels & Hospitality, Industrial & Commercial Catering, Retail, Grocery, Education, Healthcare, Facility Management, and so on. It enables the creation of new catering service models where huge savings can be made on supply chain and labour. Existing services can be transformed into a fully disposable catering service where the supply chain becomes shorter and more efficient, less labour is required and waste can be handled on site; bringing additional savings and improved hygiene.
For example, food products may be pre-packed centrally, at one place, subsequently distributed and consumed elsewhere. The waste containing packaging, cutlery and organic waste are then to be processed together in the Ecocreation machine locally.
In this way huge savings on local food processing are accessible. This applies for chains of nursing homes, schools and the like.
Ecocreation has large experience servicing events like dance festivals themselves and indirectly by its customers like waste management companies. By the PLA consortium a wide variety of food and drink disposables can be digested in one go. This can be cellulose, paper, bagasse and PLA disposables in any combination and mixture.
Also, governmental facilities, universities and other catering facilities can profit from the PLA consortium as food and drink disposables and organic waste are digested in the same machine, in the same time.
The Ecocreation patented PLA consortium combines various strains of micro-organisms in a unique formulation for the quick degradation of category 3 waste, PLA and cellulose rich materials like paper, cardboard and sugar cane-based products. The created synergy between the micro-organisms allows them to digest many types of organic matter in combination with PLA based disposables in a very short period of time.
Ecocreation patented PLA consortium enables the fast composting machines of Ecocreation to achieve maximum efficiency and quick start the composting process. Either at the first start-up cycle or by a new start after a malfunction related to unsuitable input materials in the composting machine.
Ecocreation PLA consortium allows a biological initiation of the decomposition while limiting the proliferation of pathogenic germs. In contrast to pathogenic germs, the Ecocreation PLA consortium resists the hygiene phase: 1 hour at 70 degrees Celsius. Ecocreation Cat3 complies with the European standards and regulations of composting with animal by products.
For example, food products may be pre-packed centrally. The waste containing packaging, cutlery and organic waste are then to be processed together in the Ecocreation machine locally. In this way huge savings on local food processing are accessible.
