Understanding

BIOPLASTICS

Bioplastics encompasses a whole family of materials which are biobased, biodegradable, or both.
Derived from renewable biomass sources, such as plant based starch, sugarcane or cellulose, Bioplastics are already used in packaging, agriculture, gastronomy, consumer electronics and automotive industries, just to name a few.

Bioplastic materials are used to manufacture products intended for short term use, such as mulch films or catering products, as well as durable applications, such as bottles, mobile phone covers or interior components for cars. Some common applications of bioplastics are packaging materials, dining utensils, food packaging, hygiene products and insulation.
