Innovation From Waste Oil Drives The Bioplastics Packaging Industry Globally Including China

Published Date: Aug 2015

Radio.cz covered a news in April, 2015 that brought into focus a Czech firm, Nafigate Corporation that backed an award for manufacturing bioplastic from cooking oil.  Awarded by ‘Frost & Sullivan ‘for one of its kind innovation as well as technology, the firm had licensed the patient it developed at Brno’s Technology University several years back. Likewise, industry experts preparing the 2015 bioplastics packaging industry report -global and Chinese market reveal that the company intends to continue devising the production technology for a much larger scale, commercial applications and reduce waste.

Commenting on the project Daniel Pohludka at Nafigate said “There are two aspects: one is that there is a significant environmental benefit to transforming used cooking or waste oil. We are focusing on China because China has a huge problem with waste oil (although it is a problem elsewhere as well). There is about 15 million tons of waste oil per year. The second benefit is that we are turning waste into a bioplastic, so there is added-value. It is biodegradable.

The company collects waste oil from various places including the food production units, households, restaurants and more. Daniel explained “We are developing applications where biodegradability is important and China is a good market for that as well: we are working on so-called mulch film, plastic to cover crops in cold areas so they can grow. Currently, they use a petroleum-based film which is bad for the environment and reduces the fertility of fields. There is huge pressure to change to biodegradable.”
