Bio-plastics

Bio plastics are plastics in which all carbon is derived from renewable feed stocks. They may or may not be biodegradable. Bio based plastics contain both renewable and fossil-fuel-based carbon. The percentage of bio based ingredients and the conditions, under which the bio based product may biodegrade, if at all, vary widely. Products on the market are made from a variety of natural feedstock’s including corn, potatoes, rice, tapioca, palm fibre, wood cellulose, wheat fibre and bagasse. Products are available for a wide range of applications such as cups, bottles, cutlery, plates, bags, bedding, furnishings, carpets, film, textiles and packaging materials. In the US, the percentage of bio based ingredients required for a product to be referred to as bio based, is defined by the USDA on a product-by-product basis. ILSR has recommended that the USDA set a minimum threshold of 50 per cent bio based content for products to be considered bio based.
