UK-based management consulting company Cambridge Consultants has developed a range of food packaging products sourced from Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) bioplastics.

Bioplastics are bio-derived and/or biodegradable plastics that can be used as a technical alternative to conventional polymers.

PHAs are biodegradable, readily compostable thermoplastics that are developed from microbial fermentation of carbon-based feedstocks.

“Businesses across all industries are beginning to realise the potential of innovation to improve both profit and sustainability.”

The company has designed a set of biodegradable plastic products, all served up on a bioplastic tray, in order to demonstrate the potential of PHA bioplastics in the foodservice industry.

Bioplastics can be manufactured from post-consumer waste by converting environmentally damaging waste into a valuable resource to be used as a feedstock for industrial processes.

Cambridge Consultants studied a wide range of biopolymers and identified materials that can be best used in several food applications, such as single-use coffee pods and microwave trays.

Cambridge Consultants Sustainability and Circular Economy lead Catherine Joce said: “For generations, there has been a dependency between economic growth and increased resource consumption and emissions.

“It doesn’t have to be that way. Businesses across all industries are beginning to realise the potential of innovation to improve both profit and sustainability.”

All bioplastics items are designed to decompose in industrial composting facilities, thereby eliminating the need for sorting, washing and using separate bins.
