A disposable vase comprises biodegradable material. In one embodiment, the wall of the vase is made of a plastic selected from a biodegradable polymer selected from a polyester and a polymer derived from starch or a mixture thereof, wherein the polymer has a thickness that allows the vase to retain its shape. When it becomes street litter, such a vase decomposes relatively fast. The biodegradable plastic can be selected from polylactates and polyhydroxyalkanoates. Preferably the polyhydroxyalkanoate is chosen from polyhydroxybutanoate, polyhydroxyoctanoate, polyhydroxyvalerate and mixtures thereof.
The excellent plastic properties of these polyesters also offer possibilities for use at home, since their environment-friendly character permits the owner of the vase to discard, without feeling embarrassed, a vase that he or she considers less beautiful or of which he or she is tired, and to buy another vase.

Financial information

The product I like to introduce is the Biovaas ( so called in Dutch)
In 2009 we have been nominated for the climate award and we were mentioned in several Dutch papers, Radio programs, London Florist magazine etc.
The Biovase is a biodegradable disposable flower vase.
As you know : Bio-plastics are plastics made from plants and (non consumable) vegetables such as maize, starch, grain, cassava, suger beets, sugercane, etc. (“renewable sources” as they are called)
The product is in any thickness and shape patented.
US patent 8,088,460 and NL 1030400 ( EP 1928283 and WO 2007030007 are pending)
After an investigation time of about 4 years, the product is ready to produce, because we did several tests and developments with the TNO.
TNO is the Dutch Institute for Knowledge for Science and Industry.
We did tests with European and American raw materials.
The product is known to Cereplast- California as some models are issued to the former manager Mr. Muchin.
In Holland we have some potential large customers, but till now we did produced only 2000 pieces as promotional items, due to lack of finances and because production in Holland is far too expensive.

The American raw material was perfect and a cheap possibility for the huge USA (internet ) selling flower market.
