Production of Bioplastic By Using Biodegradable Sources

bioplastic derived from biodegradable sources

Published research highlighted the production of starch-based bioplastic by making use of biodegradable sources. Two plasticizers -Glycerol and Sorbitol- were used in the production process of biosample. The physical and chemical properties of produced bioplastic were analyzed using different methodologies. The use of biodegradable material has made bioplastic a favorable alternative to conventional plastics. For […]
