Eco-Friendly Material

Eco-Friendly Material

 

With the increasing diversification of plastic product applications, there's a corresponding rise in plastic waste generation. Environmental concerns are mounting, with an estimated 12 million tons of plastic waste entering the oceans annually, exacerbating pollution. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Nytex has embarked on a quest for alternatives to mitigate dependence on fossil fuels, channeling significant resources and effort into development. 

In response to global environmental challenges, Nytex offers three critical solutions: 

  • Bio-based Composite Materials: These materials entail either partial or complete substitution of petroleum fuels with bio-sourced alternatives. By harnessing renewable resources, Nytex aims to reduce reliance on non-renewable fossil fuels. 
  • Biodegradable Composite Materials: Nytex explores composite processing techniques using self-degradable materials. These materials can decompose under specific environmental conditions, offering a sustainable solution to mitigate plastic waste accumulation. 
  • Recycled Materials: Nytex advocates for the recycling and reuse of plastic waste. Collaborating with third-party manufacturers, Nytex promotes the collection, processing, and re-manufacturing of waste plastics to create recycled materials. This approach not only reduces environmental impact but also contributes to a circular economy by extending the lifespan of plastic materials. 

Through these initiatives, Nytex demonstrates its commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable practices, striving to address the pressing issue of plastic pollution while advancing towards a more sustainable future.

BIO-BASED MATERIALS 

Derived from renewable sources like sugarcane, rice, or corn, bio-based materials boast high sugar or starch content. These raw materials undergo fermentation to yield bio-based polymers or chemicals, subsequently polymerized into usable polymers. 

BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC 

Biodegradable polymers can stem from either bio-based or traditional petroleum-based sources. Their defining characteristic is the ability to naturally decompose, either under specific conditions or through natural processes. The international standard mandates that over 90% of the organic carbon decomposes into harmless byproducts like carbon dioxide within six months without posing toxicity risks. 

RECYCLED PLASTIC 

Recycled plastics primarily originate from marine waste, industrial surplus, and consumer discards. Recycling facilities process these materials, removing impurities to create usable recycled materials. Through compounding and manufacturing, recycled plastics find new life, contributing to sustainable material cycles and reducing environmental impact. 

Bio-based materials 

The primary distinction between bio-based materials and traditional counterparts lies in their reliance on renewable biomass like wood powder, beans, rice, straw, and bamboo. These raw materials undergo conversion into chemical monomers, which are subsequently polymerized into polymer materials. In contrast to traditional polymers, bio-based materials offer two significant advantages: 

  • Renewable Biomass Utilization: Bio-based materials predominantly derive their components from biofuels, thereby lessening society's reliance on and consumption of fossil fuels. 
  • Reduced Carbon Emissions: The production process of bio-based materials results in lower carbon emissions compared to traditional materials, contributing to environmental sustainability. 

With the ongoing advancement of bio-based materials, there's a growing diversity in available types and specifications. Nytex has undertaken research and development initiatives focused on various bio-based materials within the engineering plastics sector. By offering suitable materials tailored to customer applications, Nytex not only aids in reducing carbon emissions during production but also actively participates in sustainable environmental endeavors. 

Biodegradable plastic 

Biodegradable plastics, often referred to as green plastics, possess the unique ability to undergo decomposition and metabolism by microorganisms under specific environmental conditions, including adequate moisture, oxygen levels, and suitable microbial presence. This breakdown process yields environmentally benign byproducts such as water, carbon dioxide, and methane, among others. 

Nytex has maintained a steadfast commitment to environmental conservation and has consistently dedicated efforts towards this cause. By merging established composite material technology with the characteristics of biodegradable plastics, Nytex has successfully engineered biodegradable modified materials. These materials boast exceptional dyeing capabilities, ease of processing, and post-use decomposability, making them highly suitable for a wide range of applications, including household items, outdoor equipment, and structural construction materials. 

Recognizing the emerging popularity of survival games and the widespread use of BB bullets, Nytex has identified potential environmental hazards associated with these activities. BB bullets, when dispersed in the soil, do not naturally degrade but instead leach into the soil with rainfall, leading to soil contamination and posing risks of human exposure through the food chain. In response, Nytex has undertaken research and development initiatives focused on "Biodegradable polymer materials for BB bullets," aimed at mitigating the environmental impact of these activities. 

Recycled materials 

With the surge in demand for plastic products, the issue of plastic waste has become increasingly prominent. To address this challenge, methods such as artificial treatment and recycling have gained traction. The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification plays a crucial role in ensuring the sustainability of recycled materials.

 

The GRS certification, or Global Recycled Standard, serves as a comprehensive and voluntary standard for product specifications. To achieve GRS certification, products must contain a minimum of 20% certified recycled materials and must meet strict pollution-free criteria. 

In addition to specifying the origin of raw materials, the GRS also encompasses corporate social responsibility, environmental pollution control during production, and the regulation of toxic chemical usage. 

Nytex is dedicated to developing composite projects using recycled materials while prioritizing the well-being of its employees. This commitment led Nytex to successfully obtain GRS certification in early 2022, showcasing its commitment to sustainability and responsible practices.
