Today, disposable plastic goods are exerting aggravating influence on the environment.
Various kinds of disposable biodegradable vessels which are low in production cost and environment-friendly are produced in the DPRK.
The vessels are made of by-products of potato starch. Their substance disappears one week after being discarded and degrades naturally and completely in three months. The throwaway vessels are of great economic value, too, as they can be used as feed for domestic animals.
The Mangyongdae Plastic Goods Processing Plant reduced the production cost of vessels markedly by introducing a technology based on domestic raw materials.
The environment-friendly vessels with hygienic safety go down well with public catering establishments and users.
