Hello, dear friends, Welcome to cycletech! We are committed to advanced environmental technology product application development and value-added services to help customers embrace the changes and challenges, this is a product guide to all users, the text of the green is a link to the link, we suggest that you are interested in the answer to click on the links to expand the reading. Hopefully this guide will give you a quick idea of "Cycletech."
We mainly provide disposable food containers. Depending on the type of material, we offer bamboo pulp fiber containers and thermoplastic food containers. A variety of collocations can meet the needs of a variety of fast and casual eating scenes.
It depends on the needs of the customer. Usually, we add water-repellent and anti-oil agents to our product formula to give the product a certain degree of water and oil resistance. Of course, these additives meet FDA food safety requirements.
Used in non-heated conditions, our products can withstand 100 ° C hot water, 120 ° C hot oil, lasting more than 2 hours, can meet most food scenes.
Our product page has parameters to explain the applicable conditions, you can also refer to the description of the table below.
Bamboo pulp food containers can be placed in the refrigerator, but long-term storage of food is not recommended. Because plant fibers are breathable in the microstructure, long-term storage of food can cause taste changes or freeze-burn problems.
Although the bamboo pulp food container is designed for hot taste foods, it does not mean that it can fully withstand the heating process of microwave and ovens.
*The following is the Cycletech laboratory test situation：
The bamboo pulp food container supports microwave heating non-liquid food, heating condition (750W High, 5min); it is not suitable for liquid, the liquid heating process will boil, and the water molecules will move vigorously under high temperature, which will penetrate the bottom of the container and cause leakage.
Bamboo pulp food containers support oven heating non-liquid foods, heating conditions (Bake, 200 ° C, 15 min), too high temperatures can cause the container to carbonize or burn.
The main component of the bamboo fiber food container is the original pulp plant fiber, and the composition is composed of bamboo pulp, sugar cane pulp, wood pulp and water and oil repellent, and the composition of the bamboo pulp exceeds 60%. The product is tested by FDA and the test results meet the food contact requirements.
Yes! We have experienced ID designers who can help you implement your product ideas, and we have labs to test the reliability of our products, and we can try to explore new solutions together.
It depends on the weight of the type of food, different product configurations and thicknesses are related to the weight performance of the product.
If you have any idea, please let us know. We can verify the best ratio by testing.
In fact, “biodegradable” and “compostable” are different concepts.
All living creatures consume resources and generate waste. In a well-balanced ecosystem, one creature’s waste is another creature’s resource. Within the Earth’s natural cycles, waste that is bio-based and compostable is a healthy, renewable nutrient to new life. Bamboo Fiber Technology is considered to be one of the best solution to reduce the petroleum-based raw materials instead of using conventional or bio-based materials or even biodegradable materials. If you look at the Quadrant, Our Cycletech product is not only renewable but also compostable, In seeking to make purchases that respect the Earth, consumers must understand the different meanings of the terms “compostable,” “biodegradable,” and “bio-based.”
Meets D6400 composting standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM): Under a managed composting program, the product must 1) break down to carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass at a rate similar to paper, 2) disintegrate into small pieces within 90 days, so that the original product is not visually distinguishable in the compost, and 3) leave no toxic residue.
Capable of disintegration by biological means; typically, composed of organic matter that can be readily decomposed by a wide variety of microorganisms; technically, composed of almost any material since with enough time, some microorganisms can decompose almost anything; for example, aluminum cans will biodegrade in the ocean in about 175 years, and hard plastic bottle caps will biodegrade in the ocean in about 400 years.
Derived from plants; derived from living matter; derived from renewable biological resources. However, products labeled as “Bio-based” are not necessarily compostable unless specified as such.
The composting process involves four main components: organic matter, moisture, oxygen, and bacteria.
Organic matter includes plant materials and some animal manures. Organic materials used for compost should include a mixture of brown organic material (dead leaves, twigs, manure) and green organic material (lawn clippings, fruit rinds, etc.). Brown materials supply carbon, while green materials supply nitrogen. The best ratio is 1 part green to 1 part brown material. Shredding, chopping or mowing these materials into smaller pieces will help speed the composting process by increasing the surface area.
For piles that have mostly brown material (dead leaves), try adding a handful of commercial 10-10-10 fertilizer to supply nitrogen and speed the compost process.
Moisture is important to support the composting process. Compost should be comparable to the wetness of a wrung-out sponge.
If the pile is too dry, materials will decompose very slowly. Add water during dry periods or when adding large amounts of brown organic material. If the pile is too wet, turn the pile and mix the materials. Another option is to add dry, brown organic materials.
Oxygen is needed to support the breakdown of plant material by bacteria. To supply oxygen, you will need to turn the compost pile so that materials at the edges are brought to the center of the pile. Turning the pile is important for complete composting and for controlling odor.
Wait at least two weeks before turning the pile, to allow the center of the pile to “heat up” and decompose. Once the pile has cooled in the center, decomposition of the materials has taken place. Frequent turning will help speed the composting process.
Bacteria and other microorganisms are the real workers in the compost process. By supplying organic materials, water, and oxygen, the already present bacteria will break down the plant material into useful compost for the garden. As the bacteria decompose the materials, they release heat, which is concentrated in the center of the pile. You may also add layers of soil or finished compost to supply more bacteria and speed the composting process. Commercial starters are available but should not be necessary for compost piles that have a proper carbon to nitrogen ratio (1 part green organic material to 1 part brown organic material). In addition to bacteria, larger organisms including insects and earthworms are active composters. These organisms break down large materials in the compost pile.
The amount of time needed to produce compost depends on several factors, including the size of the compost pile, the types of materials, the surface area of the materials, and the number of times the pile is turned.
For most efficient composting, use a pile that is between 3 feet cubed and 5 feet cubed (27-125 cu. ft.). This allows the center of the pile to heat up sufficiently to break down materials.
Smaller piles can be made but will take longer to produce finished compost. Larger piles can be made by increasing the length of the pile but limiting the height and the depth to 5 feet tall by 5 feet deep; however, large piles are limited by a person’s ability to turn the materials. You may also want to have two piles, one for finished compost ready to use in the garden, and the other for unfinished compost.
If the pile has more brown organic materials, it may take longer to compost. You can speed up the process by adding more green materials or a fertilizer with nitrogen (use one cup per 25 square feet).
The surface area of the materials effects the time needed for composting. By breaking materials down into smaller parts (chipping, shredding, mulching leaves), the surface area of the materials will increase. This helps the bacteria to more quickly break down materials into compost.
Finally, the number of times the pile is turned influences composting speed. By turning more frequently (about every 2-4 weeks), you will produce compost more quickly. Waiting at least two weeks allows the center of the pile to heat up and promotes maximum bacterial activity. The average composter turns the pile every 4-5 weeks.
When turning the compost pile, make sure that materials in the center are brought to the outsides, and that materials from the outside edges are brought to the center.
With frequent turning, compost can be ready in about 3 months, depending on the time of year. In winter, the activity of the bacteria slows, and it is recommended that you stop turning the pile after November to keep heat from escaping the pile’s center. In summer, warm temperatures encourage bacterial activity and the composting process is quicker.
Our full range of bamboo fiber products are 100% biodegradable and compostable.
Is the consumer really “A God”? A scene of “all businesses are 100% perfect” may exist? Is it possible for governments at all levels to manage food safety? In the current society, such “dreams” are obviously too impractical.
In the news of food safety and commodity quality issues, we often hear accusations from merchants and government regulators. But in fact, consumers themselves have an unshirkable responsibility in these issues. For example, when we ask for a substantial extension of the shelf life of processed products, businesses have to use more preservatives; when we don’t want to cook by ourselves but rely on a variety of ready-to-eat packaged foods, the addition of chemical additives is inevitable; I hope that all fruits and vegetables are neat and glamorous and cheap, and farmers are forced to spray a lot of insecticides…
Shopping, in addition to solving the needs of life, can actually be a social movement. We can use “consumption” as a way to cast a sacred vote for the things we support, so that these things, and the human moral values they are involved in can be continued. The good and bad of goods, the social effect of commodity production, is not just a business side. Therefore, both “Ethical production” and “Ethical consumption” are indispensable. Ethical consumption encourages ordinary consumers to use their own civic power to use the right choices to spawn and support conscience-savvy businesses.
