Introducing EATware™, Environment Appropriate Tableware from GTI

Share Article

EATware™ products are environmentally friendly, single use food containers made from pulp using bamboo and sugar cane fibers. Unlike Expanded Polystyrene products that take over 200 years to decompose and can only do so in landfills, an EATware™ product can decompose to 64% in just 180 days. EATware™ products can also be recycled as paper.

Introducing EATware™, Environment Appropriate Tableware from GTI.

Who we are

Glory Team Industrial Ltd. (GTI) is a technology-driven company dedicated to developing a real solution to the environmental hazard caused by non-degradable disposable food containers. We headquarter in Hong Kong and operate internationally with major presence in the United States, Singapore and China.

Did you know?

Single-use disposable Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) food and beverage containers are discarded by consumers around the world at an overwhelming rate of 438 billion units per year or 140,000 units per second. They take more than 200 years to decompose and can only be disposed of at landfills. If global EPS consumption remains at the current rate, soon all available landfill areas on earth will be used up. EPS food packaging has already been banned in parts of Japan, Europe, China and the USA.

What we are doing to help

In response to worldwide governmental policies addressed to the issue, we started extensive research and development in the mid 1990s. GTI collaborated with industry experts and academics, with a vision to develop a viable substitute to EPS products that are practical, safe to use and reasonably priced.

Our decade-long effort started to pay off when our revolutionary pulp packaging technology was ready for commercial use and we first introduced our signature product, EATware™ to consumer markets in 2005.

Our Products

EATware™ products are environmentally friendly, single use food containers made from pulp using bamboo and sugar cane fibers. We make a range of products from boxes and bowls to trays and plates. By meeting FDA and HACCP standards, you can ensure that EATware products are hygienic and safe to use. EATware™ products are comparable in functionality to all existing disposable food containers in the market, and uniquely they are 100% biodegradable.

Although EATware products are only 0.7mm thick, they can be used in an oven (at 150°C) or steamer for 30 minutes, or a household microwave on full power for 5 minutes.

Unlike EPS products that take over 200 years to decompose and can only do so in landfills, an EATware™ product can decompose to 64% in just 180 days. EATware™ products can also be recycled as paper.

After generations of refinement, we were proud to introduce EATplusTM in 2002. EATplus™ is the world’s first 100% organic additive used in the paper pulp food container industry. It enhances the mechanical properties of fibers with a cross linking mechanism, making them resistant to oil and water, even at high temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes. Our containers remain highly biodegradable, to which no synthetic additive can compare. Equally important, EATplusTM consists of no expensive ingredients keeping production cost low. This gives our products a very competitive edge.

How we do it

We use a chemical-free pulping system. We extract virgin cellulose fibers from agricultural residues, like bamboo and sugar cane. The plant tissues are put into a semi-mechanical pulping system, specially engineered to separate fibers in mechanical actions without any chemical agents. Absolutely chlorine and sulfur free, our unique pulping system causes minimal environmental hazard. It eliminates any pollution charges and reduces our costs by eliminating the need to purchase any expensive chemicals.

Our innovativeness in engineering design is expressed all through the manufacturing flow. We are proud to present our zero emission manufacturing technology. We recycle all liquid and solid leftover into the pulping system again. We do not create and dispose any organic or chemical waste.

We pioneer in pulp technology in one very important way. By using our patented compression chamber, (UK patent application no. GB0415853.1), we can reduce the forming time in half. We push the pulp tight into the molds using pressure instead of the traditional way of vacuuming. We can also manipulate the pressure exerted throughout the process to achieve optimum product quality.
