Applications of Bioplastics

In search of new material solutions and keeping an eye on the goal of sustainable production and consumption, bioplastics have several (potential) advantages. The use of renewable resources to produce bioplastics is the key for increasing resource efficiency, the resources can be cultivated on an (at least) annual basis, the principle of cascade use, as biomass can first be used for materials and then for energy generation, a reduction of the carbon footprint and GHG emissions of some materials and products - saving fossil resources, and for substituting them step by step. The research of Bioplastics used in various systems the North America market totaled $38.3 billion in 2013. This market should increase to about $40.2 billion in 2014 and should reach about $51.8 billion by 2019, demonstrating a CAGR of 5.2% from 2014 to 2019. The Latin American market totaled $3.4 billion in 2013. This market should reach almost $6.8 billion by 2019, a CAGR of 12.6% from 2014 to 2019.

BioPlastic offers a variety of benefits, in a variety of shapes, such as sheets, panels, film which can all be as flexible as the application requires. Plastic is price competitive with other materials that offer similar advantages in industrial applications, which is why used for number of applications that you have not thought of or would even surprise you. Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable bioplastic that is already used to produce a variety of everyday items, such as cups, trays, bowls and vegetable wrapping foil. These Bioplastics are also used in non-disposable applications including mobile phone casings, carpet fibres, insulation car interiors, fuel lines, and plastic piping. New electroactive bioplastics are being developed that can be used to carry electric current. In these areas, the goal is not biodegradability, but to create items from sustainable resources.
