Recently, dirty disinfection tableware and unqualified catering utensils have been exposed frequently. When the reporter investigates 1 yuan disinfection tableware, he found that a kind of "corn starch degradable tableware" appeared on the table of some hotels in Kaifeng, Henan Province. It is understood that this kind of tableware can be directly thrown away as domestic waste after use, and it can be completely degraded in only one month to half a year when buried underground. Experts said that the emergence of such degradable tableware is expected to gradually enter people's vision, instead of "dirty tableware".
Kaifeng has been used by 80 catering units.
It is understood that, so far, more than 80 catering units in Kaifeng City have used this low-carbon environmental protection tableware. So, can the emergence of this degradable tableware solve the current problems faced by disinfection tableware, gradually replacing the need for disinfection of ceramic tableware? In response, Mr. Chen of the School of Food Science and Engineering of Kaifeng University expressed his approval.

"Real corn starch tableware can be degradable, and because it is disposable in use, it avoids cross-infection caused by incomplete disinfection of ceramic tableware. But the premise is that it must be certified by the national quality inspection department, which includes production license, inspection report and so on. Wang told reporters that the starch content of corn starch tableware that meets the requirements is more than 60%, which can be degraded environmentally and reduce a series of processes needed for disinfection tableware. It belongs to a low-carbon environmental protection product.
3.28, the reporter contacted the agent of the product in Kaifeng according to the telephone provided on the tableware, and found Lankao Green Ring Degradable Plastic Products Factory, the manufacturer of this kind of corn starch tableware. On the inspection report and food hygiene license provided by the other party, the reporter saw the inspection report issued by the National Environmental Protection Product Quality Supervision and Inspection Center, including evaporation residue and heat resistance. More than ten other projects have been tested, according to the results, all the tests are in line with the requirements.
