About PHA Technology 

Nodax PHA is a biodegradable and renewable biopolymer made through entirely plant-based and biologic processes. PHA products function with similar performance and quality to traditional plastics. Everything you love about plastic, with none of the guilt. Breaks down in the water in 90-120 days, soil 140-160 days, home 80-100 days, and industrial 45-90 days. 

Biopolymer derived from the fermentation of canola oil that maintains the feel and user experience of traditional plastic. Because of its organic make-up, PHA acts as an energy and food source for bacteria. Ultimately, MR USA straws biodegrade wherever there are significant bacteria present, such as home compost piles, industrial compost facilities, and even marine environments.

Unlike petroleum-based plastics that take 200+ years to go away, PHA is plant-based. PHA products are created from nature and designed to return to nature. So, while nearly every piece of traditional plastic ever made still sits somewhere spoiling our planet, MR USA offers a biodegradable replacement with an honest, end-of-life solution that effectively combats the global plastics crisis.

If we haven’t made it clear, PHA is a groundbreaking advancement in bioplastics. We owe it to our planet, and ourselves, to push for smarter alternatives that can go away after use…sustainably returning to the earth and leaving nothing behind but a good feeling.


Lifecycle of PHA


How Do Scientists Measure Marine Biodegradation?

PHAs are biodegraded under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions by PHA degraders present in most natural environments, including the marine environment.

Biodegradation is a biological process and is dependent on many factors, most notably the number of microorganisms, bacteria, algae, and fungi present in the environment, but also the properties of the finished product that is being biodegraded, as well as location in the ocean, temperature, oxygen and pH levels.

What Does “Biodegradation” Really Mean?

Biodegradation is a multi-step process in which microorganisms use material as a source of food and energy. It is a biological process that consumes the entire material and results in only the following:

  • CO2 if the conditions are aerobic, or methane if the conditions are anaerobic (lack oxygen).
    • Note that rapeseed plants (from which canola oil is made) consume CO2 when growing, thus making this a circular cycle.
    • Methane is typically captured and used as a source of energy.
  • Biomass – this represents the growth and reproduction of the microorganisms that use biodegradable material for food and energy.

Reasons To Buy

With buying American made, you are keeping manufactures in this Country which will supply the next generation with jobs. Once a manufacturing plant leaves America, they rarely come back.

Due to government laws, manufactures are becoming green manufactures. Which are producing less of a carbon footprint in the environment.

The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program is a rigorous and credible food safety and quality program that is recognized by retailers, brand owners, and food service providers world-wide. Recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the SQF family of food safety and quality codes are designed to meet industry, customer, and regulatory requirements for all sectors of the food supply chain – from the farm all the way to the retail stores.

Buying American made products, you are helping fellow workers, and supporting fair working condition that are set in place by OSHA. You are not supporting child labor, slavery, and unfair pay.

Yes, they are! Unlike paper, our straws are certified home compostable (they pass testing for AS 5810 and are certified by TUV Austria’s OK compost HOME). No trees have been sacrificed in order to produce our straws. Our materials are all made in the USA and come from nature.

With manufacturers employing American workers, there a good chance that the money will be reinvested into the economy.
