Bioplastics are no longer the exclusive realm of biodegradable or compostable plastics made from natural materials such as corn or starch. In fact, bioplastics are also being applied to degradable petroleum based plastics, natural-based plastics that are not necessarily biodegradable and plastics containing both petroleum-based and plant-based materials that could biodegrade or not. Growing public concern regarding the environment, climate change and constricted fossil fuel resources represent key drivers for governments, companies, and researchers to unveil safer alternatives to petroleum-based plastics.
