  • Post last modified:May 6, 2021

Bioplastics are biodegradable materials that are manufactured using microorganisms, renewable raw materials, petrochemicals, or combinations of all three. 

Considered as the answer to traditional plastic which contaminates the environment and harms wildlife, bioplastics are 100% degradable, just as strong, resistant and versatile. It is already used in industries such as agriculture, medicine and packaging. 

The demand for bioplastics is expected to continue growing as both consumers and companies become more aware of the dangers of plastic waste. 

Advantages of bioplastics

The growth of the global bioplastics market is due to the many advantages that bioplastics offer. These include:

  • The reduction of one’s carbon footprint
  • Saves energy during the production process
  • The production process reduces non-biodegradable waste which harms the environment
  • Bioplastics manufacturing do not use non-renewable resources
  • Bioplastics are free of harmful additives such as phthalates and bisphenol A
  • Bioplastics used in the food packaging industry do not change the flavor and smell of the food
