"The study found that this type of plastic waste cannot be recycled. In addition, a global plastic material balance study found that "79% of all plastics produced in the world end up in our environment as waste." Only 9% of all plastic waste in the world is recycled.

"In India, according to the coalition government, 40% of the 25,000 tons of plastic waste generated every day are left in the trash can and not collected. So what are the possible solutions?  introduces HiTech International, a Gurugram company founded by brothers Mukul and Siddharth Sareen. The company produces a plant-based biopolymer called Dr Bio.

The company claims that this biocompostable plastic dissolves in the soil. In the long run, the brothers believe in doctors. Bio can be used to replace disposable and reusable plastic products with bio-compostable plastics, such as bottles, straws, cups, disposable tableware, plastic bags, etc.

Hi Tech is the first company in the country to produce plant-based biopolymers. Your latest version, doctor. Bio, approved by the China Petrochemical Technology Research Institute (formerly the Central Petrochemical Engineering Technology Research Institute, CIPET). They believe that this allows HiTech to"redefine the plastics industry and transform it into sustainable biocompostable plastics."

 Expanded influence

Currently, its compostable bioplastic production capacity is approximately 8,000 tons per year. They hope to expand it to around 21,000 tons per year by January 2022. Currently, Dr. Organic is sold internationally and in India to e-commerce companies’ mail-order compost bags and cosmetic companies’ compostable bottles.

The products sold by FMCG have a shelf life of about one month, which is the amount of waste generated. They also produce disposable tableware, enter retail and trade channels, and sell them to various fast food restaurants across India.

Compliance with regulations

According to this report from The Times of India, “The Union government is changing regulations and will gradually ban the use and manufacture of plastics smaller than 75 microns from September 25 (previously the use of plastic bags smaller than 50 microns was prohibited). By 2022 December."

From December 31 next year, the use of plastic bags smaller than 120 microns will be banned. The ban does not apply to products made of compostable plastics. Although the country has banned the use of plastic bags less than 50 microns thick, the government has phased out disposable handbags and other commodities.
