Bio-Plastics From Starch Based Food Crops

Bio-plastics or bio-organic plastics are a form of plastic derived from renewable biomass sources such as vegetable oil, corn starch or microbioata in contrast to fossil fuel plastics which are derived from petroleum residues. Biodegradable polymers will play an important role in the packaging sector in future. Bio-plastic polymers have great potential to contribute to material recovery, reduction of ¬†landfill, customized products and use of renewable resources. Bio-plastics represent a new material group, which can make use of all the established recovery and recycling technologies for conventional plastics and moreover offer the new option of recycling. Bio-plastics production consumes fewer …
