Thai bioplastic bag program launched

German chemical company BASF has joined the Thai Bioplastics Industry Association (TBAI), Thailand's National Innovation Agency (NIA) and Germany's Technical Cooperation group GTZ in launching a biodegradable bag project in Thailand, which aims to build composting facilities in the country for efficient waste management as well as support the development of the country's bioplastic industry.
