Theme: Bioplastics: An Improved Plastics for a healthier Environment
Bioplastics are plastics in which all carbon is derived from renewable feedstocks. They may or may not be biodegradable. Biobased plastics contain both renewable and fossil-fuel-based carbon. The percentage of biobased ingredients and the conditions under which the biobased product may biodegrade, if at all, vary widely. Products on the market are made from a variety of natural feedstocks including corn, potatoes, rice, tapioca, palm fiber, wood cellulose, wheat fiber, 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 biobased ingredients required for a product to be referred to as biobased is defined by the USDA on a product-by-product basis. Bioplastics Conference 2016 is an event delivering the concept of the biobased world across the globe. In the present world where the use of conventional plastics, the consequences of plastic products use and the waste management of these products when they become waste, is a current and pressing issue. Concerns focus on the potential impact of conventional plastics they cause to the environment.
Importance & Scope:
Bioplastics play a vital role in our lives because of its uniqueness in properties and extended application in industries, packaging, sports, medicine, perfumes and preservatives, plastics, fuels, toys etc. Plastics are also used in the manufacture of Prosthetic devices and surgical equipment. The diversity of use is growing day by day. The history of Bioplastics is not a long one. They are beginning to emerge as a result of needing to be more responsible in taking care of the world we live in. Various reasons are associated with the research and development of Bioplastics. The use of biopolymers and bioplastics could markedly increase as more durable versions are developed, and the cost to manufacture these bio-plastics and composites continues to go fall. Bioplastics can replace conventional plastics in the field of their applications also and can be used in different sectors such as food packaging, plastic plates, cups, cutlery, plastic storage bags, storage containers or other plastic or composite material items you are buying and therefore can help in making environment sustainable.
Bioplastics have wide application in industries like aerospace, automobile etc. It also finds application in specific products like fishing rods, bicycle, sports equipment etc. Traditional plastics are full of harmful by-products and chemicals, which are released during their breakdown process. Biodegradable plastics are completely safe and do not have any chemicals or toxins. This plastic harmlessly breaks down and gets absorbed into the earth. Such advantages of bioplastics are of extreme importance, as the toxic plastic load on the earth is growing and at this rate will cause a whole range of problems for future generations. Many Bioplastics societies have been developed in recent years. The aim of these societies is to foster scientific understanding and technical innovation in Bioplastics processing by providing a platform forum for the worldwide community of engineers and scientists in the field.

A glance at Market of Bioplastics:
Bioplastics are no longer the exclusive realm of biodegradable or compostable plastics made from natural materials such as corn or starch. In fact, bioplastics are also being applied to degradable petroleum-based plastics, natural-based plastics that are not necessarily biodegradable and plastics containing both petroleum-based and plant-based materials that could biodegrade or not. Growing public concern regarding the environment, climate change and constricted fossil fuel resources represent key drivers for governments, companies, and researchers to unveil safer alternatives to petroleum-based plastics.
The report reviews and analyses the worldwide market for Bioplastics for the global and the regional markets including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and Rest of World. The regional markets further analyzed for 10 independent countries across North America - the United States, Canada, and Mexico; Europe - France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and Rest of Europe; Asia-Pacific - China, Japan and Rest of Asia-Pacific; South America - Brazil and Rest of South America.
