Bioplastic

Bioplastic

A biodegradable, renewable plastic is derived from plant starch and vegetable oils, it is environmentally friendly and the best alternative to petroleum-based plastics. Bioplastic has intelligent benefits like tactile properties and vapour control, enriching the soil once decomposed.

Compostability

A few compostable bioplastics require high temperatures and dedicated commercial composting facilities to decompose, while others require home gardens. Bioplastics falls under different compostability category depending on their managed end-to-life.

Degradable

Traditional petroleum-based plastics are degradable when introduced to the right environmental conditions and time.

Biodegradable

It can be broken by microorganisms into water, CO2, methane, inorganic compounds, and biomass.

Compostable

Polylactic acid can produce lesser greenhouse gases and is ideally used for single-user items due to its ease of compostability.

Advantages

Advantages

Bioplastic is a naturally renewable resource reducing dependency on fossil fuels. It is biodegradable in nature, helping reduce landfills and contributing to less ecological footprints. The nature of compostability results in providing fertilisers for the soil, leaving no residue. It is both moisture and UV-light-resistant. Coming with a high rate of toughness, low melting point and good transparency, it fits perfectly in manufacturing packaging and medical devices.

Biodegradable

Biodegradable

When a material is broken down naturally, it is called biodegradable. Bacteria and fungi act on the materials to convert them into natural substances like water, CO2 and biomass. These materials can take longer to decompose based on environmental factors, and the bad news is that there needs to be standard testing or certification methods.
