Kawanishi City, Japan /PRNewswire/ - Environmental problems such as global warming, extreme weather, natural resource depletion, water shortage and plastic pollution are getting severe in the world. Especially the microplastic problem in the marine environment is becoming a devastating issue. There are also some reports that microplastics are already in our human body which came from the surrounding environment and atmosphere.
In this regard, Green Science Alliance Co., Ltd. has developed various type of biodegradable resin materials with 100 % nature biomass composition so far.
This time, Dr. Ryohei Mori at Green Science Alliance Co., Ltd. developed coating resin material with 100 % nature biomass composition.
When there is the restriction that resin needs to be composed of 100% nature biomass, the resin properties such as pencil hardness is as low as 6 B. However, they will keep challenging to improve resin properties including pencil hardness, gas barrier properties etc.
