Each year, more than hundred million tons of petroleum-based plastic are used through-out the world. Over 30 million tons are supplied to packaging industries. Packaging represents the largest single sector of plastic consumption in the world. Plastic are man-made materials to fulfill our needs in sophisticated societies and daily lifestyles. Unfortunately, plastic waste, which is non-degradable, causes untold damage to the environment due to its difficulty to dispose of as well as the potential leaching of associated additives to natural reserves. Some plastic packaging may be used only a few minutes before turning to imperishable garbage. Single-use foodservice wares, such as plastic cutlery and shopping bags are perfect examples of non-degradable products which contribute a significant impact on environment, especially global warming and human toxicity.
These give rise to need for various types of generally applicable solutions and investigators started searching for new alternative materials for environmental benefits and apt solution to different uses, temporary or durable in order to reduce consumption of energy and amount of solid waste going to landfill. Ideally, these innovative materials should be relatively inexpensive to produce and extremely versatile. Choosing to address the environmental problem and considering the agricultural economic base of the country, Kasetsart University has created environmentally friendly food packaging using cassava starch call “KU-Green.”

Universal Biopack Co.,Ltd is the company who concern on earth environment, we took over on KU-Green patent, expanding to commercial operation scale and do the market globally under brand name “UBPack” from year 2010 onward. For the customer or the one who get used to KU-Green, please be understand that UBPack is the “same” product and technology as KU-Green but in commercially.
