Cardia Bioplastics secures Shanghai contract

Melbourne-based International sustainable resins and products supplier, Cardia Bioplastics, has secured an exclusive annual supply contract of its renewable Biohybrid kitchen bags to the City District of Shanghai, Pudong, in China.

As part of the agreement, Cardia will annually supply an estimated $1.2 million worth of its proprietary renewable Biohybrid kitchen bags to approximately 20 percent of householders in the region.

The high quality product technology uses considerably less oil to produce an environmentally friendly renewable resin with a lower carbon footprint than conventional plastics.
Following the World Expo in 2010, Shanghai introduced and implemented an organic waste separation process to separate plant and food scraps at the household level.
“This is a critical step towards the efficient management of domestic waste in China,” said Dr Frank Glatz, Managing Director of Cardia Bioplastics.
Mr Glatz said the bags produced for the Shanghai Pudong City Council were specially tailored for the separation and collection of food and domestic waste.
It follows a six-month trial of Cardia’s Biohybrid renewable kitchen bags in Pudong and will open up opportunities for additional city councils in China.
Cardia has similar trials with three other Chinese councils in Nanjing, Hangzhou and Yuhang.
