China Green Material Technologies, Inc., a China-based manufacturer of starch-based biodegradable containers, tableware and packaging products, recently announced that the company’s new production capacity, which will increase annual production by 45 percent, will come online in the second half of 2010. In addition, the company plans to add new equipment in order to increase manufacturing efficiency and meet increasing market demand for its biodegradable consumer products.

As a leading manufacturer of proprietary biodegradable food packaging materials technologies, China Green Material Technologies expects total revenue for 2010 to increase between 25 percent and 30 percent from the $13.4 million reported in 2009. The expanded capacity will support the additional growth through 2011 as the company pursues further expansion into international markets, including the United States, France, the U.K., Israel, Korea and Japan.

“We are pleased to report progress on our expansion plans, which will enable us to meet existing customer demand and facilitate growth for this year and next,” said Mr. Zhonghao Su, chief executive officer of China Green Material Technologies. “The global market demand for environmentally friendly, bio-degradable products is among the fasting-growing in the consumer products segment. We are ideally positioned in China, where our company has a strong position in a highly fragmented market, maintains a low cost advantage and offers superior product performance.” Mr. Zhonghao Su continued, “To capitalize on the rapid domestic growth, we are focused on increasing our market share in the airline and railway sectors, developing additional clients in the fast food industry and expanding our network of agents and distributors.”
