What is bio-plastic ?

Bio-plastics or organic plastics are a form of plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, such as corn starch, pea starch, or microbiota, rather than fossil-fuel plastics which are derived from petroleum. Some, but not all, bio-plastics are designed to biodegrade.
Bio-plastics are bio-based and/or are biodegradable plastics that provide consumers and manufacturers with a revolutionary option to help safeguard the environment and support a sustainable future. …

Biodegradable plastic is based on a new generation of biodegradable substances, mainly made from natural substances like corn and wheat starch using less energy and after usage will completely decompose into water and CO2 without leaving any harmful or toxic residues in the environment.

Starch based Bio-plastic

One of the main sources of raw material for making bio-plastic is starch. All kind of starch including corn, wheat and potato starch can be used for making bio-plastic. One of the main applications of starch based bio-plastic is in packaging industry. Nowadays in many countries starch bio-plastic is used for producing DISPOSAL TABLEWARE & SHOPPING BAG.

Demand for degradable or biodegradable starch based table ware like cutlery, plate, cup, and bowl and … as well as shopping bags increasing in all countries rapidly because of big advantages of these sort of material in comparison with traditional common plastics.
