Bioplastics and Biopolymers
Bio-plastics can help reduce reliance on fossil fuels, support sustainability in the industry and allow manufacturers to diversify feedstock. Biopolymers however are the distinctive classification of the group of materials under which bio-plastics are also included. Plastics are replaced with bio-plastics, since they pollute our environment, pose a danger to wildlife and they do not degrade quickly. But new research finds bio-plastics are just as toxic as ordinary plastics. Bio-based and biodegradable plastic is no safer than other plastic. This session deals with the latest works and news about the bio-plastics.
