Bioplastics

BIOMASS

Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production (electricity or heat), or in various industrial processes as raw material for a range of products.

 

BIOPLASTICS

Any plastic that is either biobased, biodegradable or both.

 

BIOBASED BIOPLASTICS VS BIODEGRADABLE BIOPLASTICS

Biobased bioplastics are made from renewable materials such as corn starch, whilst biodegradable bioplastics, on the other hand, refer fossil-based resources that can biodegrade. Biobased bioplastics are preferred to biodegradable bioplastics for they rely on clean renewables as feedstock unlike biodegradable plastics which depends on polluting finite resources like petroleum.
