Cellulose Acetate

Cellulose Acetate is an environmentally friendly and biodegradable material, produced from plant-derived cellulose and naturally existing Acetic Acid.
The marine plastic waste problem has recently arisen as a subject of discussion. General plastics require from several decades to centuries for complete biodegradation. However, utilizing Cellulose Acetate, which biodegrades within several months to years, as an alternative to conventional plastic offers a solution with great potential to the marine plastic waste problem.
