Bioplastic is a biodegradable product, which is derived from renewable sources, such as potatoes, vegetable oil, rice, pea starch, tapioca, corn starch, sugar cane, wheat, grains, and cellulose from wood.
Additionally, in the last few years, companies have started using paper from FCA-certified woods for liquid cartons and sugarcane polyethylene over petroleum-based materials to appeal to consumers seeking products with environment-friendly packaging.
There will be growing pressure to improve sustainability and recyclability that will urge manufacturers to introduce formats that are ##% biodegradable; for example, packages made from sugarcane bagasse.
