(ANSA) – MILAN, 02 MAY – The ‘EarthBi’ bioplastics is born in Italy through “patented and innovative production processes” which also use Blockchain technology to “guarantee transparency on the technical characteristics and traceability of the product”. This was explained by the founders of the EarthBi project, promoted by Valore Holding Group, aimed at “reducing environmental pollution caused by plastic”. “EarthBi – explains a note – is a new biobased and biodegradable plastic material, produced using biomasses deriving from production waste of natural origin and can be disposed of through normal composting processes”. The basic element is polylactic acid (Pla), which is a biodegradable plastic produced today from cane sugar or glucose. Thanks to a patent, developed in collaboration “with Italian scientists and universities”, the new polymer “adapts to different production processes, even the most complex”, and “can be used in plants dedicated to the processing of traditional plastic without changing the production lines. ” The use of the blockchain also allows “to track each lot of the product and to let customers and consumers know the quantity, origin, destination”, explain the creators of EarthBi. “From the first bioplastic production line in Italy, located in Pomezia (Rome) – they add – the plants will be developed in Slovenia and Malta in the upcoming months, for a total final capacity of about 60,000 tons a year”.
