Biodegradability, compostability and bioplastics

Bioplastics are a form of plastic that can be prepared from renewable bio-based resources. Many bioplastic materials are considered to be biodegradable, and some are designed to be compostable. These things are important for the functionality of the end product and for its disposal. When considering the environmental effect of disposing of a bioplastic product, the difference in meaning between biodegradable and compostable is important. Whether a bioplastic product is made from a biodegradable material or a compostable material is dangerous for minimising environmental impact and increasing sustainability. It is an important element for demanding greater sustainability of bioplastics over conventional plastics or for claiming improved functionality of one bioplastic over another. It’s also significant in choosing the most suitable way to dispose of an item or material.
