Bio-packages manufactured in Kazakhstan will appear in the supermarkets. They will be made from corn starch. Two entrepreneurs have come together to come up with an organic packaging alternative.

 

Miras ABBASOV, TECHNICAL DIRECTOR, BIO-PACKAGES MANUFACTURING PLANT:

 

Technological process of polymer film manufacturing from organic materials starts in this bunker. We load the pellets of organic materials; the polylactic acid is produced from corn starch in the bunker. Grain passes through these heat zones, heats up, melts at the end and turns into a film.

 

A local supermarket chain has become the first client of the new enterprise. Astana residents will be able to use eco-bags soon. Miras Abbasov and Batyrkhan Jumanov are planning to sell these bags in other cities of Kazakhstan as well.

 

Batyrkhan DZHUMANOV, BUSINESS OWNER:

 

The introduction of biodegradable bags is certainly a risk, because it is a new product. These packages decompose in a year without certain conditions. They decompose quickly at composting conditions, in favorable temperature and specific humidity. Plastic bags, however, decompose in 500 years.

 

According to entrepreneurs, the initial production volume will be 5 million packages per year. Production will be expanded in the future.
