Investment in the environment-friendly BioPlastics (PHA) technology, Technology Tie-Up / Joint Venture with AuraPHA to produce Biodegradable Plastics
New Delhi (India), January 19: Vikas Ecotech Limited is pleased to announce its plans to invest in the environment-friendly BioPlastics (PHA) technology and in the advance stage of finalising a Technology Tie-Up/Joint Venture with Aurapha Private Ltd. (the ‘AuraPHA’) to produce Biodegradable Plastics.
The concerns over the impact of the conventional plastic material on the environment are eminently visible. The solution is to adopt to biodegradable plastics such as Poly-Hydroxy-Alkanoates (PHA). PHAs are biopolymers synthesized by various types of bacteria and are bio-degradable in nature, produced from renewable resources through an eco-friendly process. Vikas Ecotech has been exploring this opportunity and working in its ways for developing eco-friendly viable alternatives.
Realising potential of environment friendly Bio Plastics concept, Vikas Ecotech has decided to start investing in that direction and in this very pursuit eyeing a Technology Tie-Up / Joint Venture with AuraPHA to produce Biodegradable Plastics on industrial scale. Initially a pilot plant for producing Biodegradable plastics shall be set-up which will eventually, with further investments, scaled up in in various well-organized phases.
In addition, in order to push the company’s keen interest in developing a variety of Bio Degradable materials to replace conventional plastics for different application areas, Vikas Ecotech is actively exploring various proposals for acquisition of necessary the technology to produce PBAT (Polybutylene adipate terephthalate), specifically to manufacture environment friendly carry bags, which are presently made of conventional plastic materials and are cause of severe environmental concerns across the world.
