Making & Composting Biodegradable Plastics
With a world drowning in plastics and a population crying out for change, there is a new innovation turning up to the market called Bioplastics. Made from plants and biodegradable, this has to be the answer, no?
- Bioplastics are a family of materials with differing properties and applications. A material is defined as a bioplastic if it is either biobased, biodegradable or features both properties.
- Currently, corn and soy represent the bulk of the bioplastic market, with corn being the primary feedstock that provides the cellulose and oils necessary for bioplastics.
