Green Science Alliance develops biodegradable resin based paint

Company has developed natural biomass biodegradable resin based paint, coating material with anti-bacteria, anti-virus effect.

Japan based company, Green Science Alliance Co., Ltd. has developed natural biomass biodegradable resin based paint, coating material with anti-bacteria, anti-virus effect. The company has been developing various type of natural biomass biodegradable resin products and nano cellulose based products and this time, Dr. Ryohei Mori used that knowledge combined with inorganic anti-bacterial material. 
 
Nowadays, environmental problems such as global warming and plastic pollution due to human population explosion are getting severe in the world and the microplastic problem in the marine environment is especially becoming a devastating issue. It is predicted that the amount of plastic garbage will be more than that of fish in the world by 2050. There are also some scientific reports that these microplastics are already in our human body. Therefore, plastic recycling, reduction of plastic usage itself, and biodegradable plastic usage and development, have been intensively challenged and carried out.
 
This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic influence, the production and consumption of mask, medical gown, medical coat, face shield, hand gloves etc. have increased in a huge amount. There are reports that masks have been spotted in the ocean as plastic pollution since these products are made of petroleum-based plastic. From this aspect, it is ideal to replace all of these materials with natural biomass based biodegradable resin. In addition, the production and consumption of paint, coating materials with anti-bacteria, anti-virus effect is expected to increase due to COVID-19 influence. Not to mention raw material of these paint, coating materials with anti-bacteria, anti-virus effect is also made of petroleum now. So it is ideal to replace these raw materials with natural biomass based materials too.
 
Dr. Mori has chosen inorganic based material because they possess robustness and strong anti-bacterial effect for real practical use. They have tested anti-bacterial effect at public third party research institute with E-Coli and confirmed anti-bacterial effect of made products. Since the inorganic material possesses not only anti-bacterial effect but also anti-virus effect, it is expected that the developed products possess anti-virus effect. Various type of antibacterial paints are in the market already. However, as far as we know, we have not seen much of anti-bacterial, anti-virus paint, coating material products made with natural biomass biodegradable resin and solvent. So that this combined concept of nature biomass based biodegradable resin material and anti-virus, anti-bacterial material, is quite new and innovative.
 
It should be carefully mentioned here that Green Science Alliance has confirmed anti-bacterial effect against E. Coli bacteria this time by third party testing organization in Japan. Since the material which has been combined with natural biomass based material is said to possess anti-virus effect, they have speculated that their newly developed products should possess anti-virus effect. The precise test should be performed soon for confirmation.   
 
Green Science Alliance will keep improving robustness, hardness, paint stability anti-friction property and viscosity properties etc. of these newly made products. They aim for rapid business expansion of natural biomass biodegradable resin based paint, coating material with anti-bacteria, anti-virus effect.
