From an environmental point of view, bioplastics are an attractive and sustainable alternative to conventional materials. On the one hand, the use of natural raw materials reduce both the dependence on fossil fuels and the greenhouse gases emissions to the atmosphere at the end of life (30%-80% depending on the material and application). On the other hand, biodegradable plastics can be jointly managed at the end of life with other organic waste. Although bioplastics are found in a wide range of market segments (Packaging, Agriculture, Construction, Automotive), Packaging and Transport Automotive are currently leading the bioplastics market. Bio-based plastics can be used in a variety of applications to replace petroleum-based plastics (petroplastics). Most bio-based plastic materials used in globally today are starch-based. In the US these materials are currently used to manufacture refuse and carrier bags as well as food and consumer goods packaging. .
