Biobased Chemicals & Bioplastics

Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is an area of chemistry and chemical engineering focused on the design of products and processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances. Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA, Poly) is a biodegradable thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch ,tapioca roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane. In 2010, PLA had the second highest consumption volume of any bioplastic of the world. Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a polymer belonging to the polyesters class that are of interest as bio-derived and biodegradable plastics. The analysts forecast the Global Green Chemicals Market to grow at a CAGR of 8.16 percent over the period 2013-2018 a market opportunity that will grow from $2.8 billion in 2014 to $98.5 billion by 2020.

Bio-based production is widely viewed as a central manufacturing element of the next bioeconomy. Bio-based products can be classified as biofuels, bio-based chemicals and bio-based plastics. The theory behind bioplastics is simple if we could make plastics from kinder chemicals to start with, they'd break down more quickly and easily when we got rid of them. The most familiar bioplastics are made from natural materials such as corn starch and sold under such names as EverCorn and NatureWorks—with a distinct emphasis on environmental credentials. Some bioplastics look virtually indistinguishable from traditional petrochemical plastics. Polylactide acid (PLA) looks and behaves like polyethylene and polypropylene and is now widely used for food containers.
