Biodegradable Polymers

Biodegradable polymers are defined as polymers comprised of monomers linked to one another through functional groups and have unstable links in the backbone. They are broken down intlo biologically acceptable molecules that are metabolized and removed from the body via normal metabolic pathways.

Bio Renewable Biopolymers

For polymers the terms “Renewably-sourced” and ”bio-based” mean the same thing. They refer to a material that contains carbon originating from a renewable plant source.  Materials are defined as renewably sourced when they contain a minimum of 20% by weight of plant sourced ingredients verified by 14C dating (ASTM definition).

Benefits of specifying biopolymers, made from a renewable plant source, or biomass, can include LEED certification points, and reduction in use of fossil fuels. At the same time, DuPont biopolymers provide durability and other qualities that enable application-critical performance in demanding applications.

Biopolymers as Materials

Polymer Nano composites (PNC) comprise of a polymer or copolymer having nanoparticles or Nano fillers scattered in the polymer network. Plastic bundling for sustenance and non-nourishment applications is non-biodegradable, and furthermore goes through profitable and rare non-renewable assets like petroleum. With the momentum concentrate on investigating other options to petroleum and accentuation on diminished natural effect, research is progressively being coordinated at improvement of biodegradable nourishment bundling from biopolymer-based materials. A biomaterial is any matter, surface, or develop that connects with organic frameworks. As a science, biomaterials are around fifty years of age. The investigation of biomaterials is called biomaterials science. It has encountered consistent and solid development over its history, with many organizations putting a lot of cash into the improvement of new items. Biomaterials science includes components of solution, science, science, tissue designing and materials science. Worldwide Biomaterial advertise over the figure time of 2012-2017 market for biomaterials is evaluated at $44.0 billion in 2012 and is ready to develop at a CAGR of 15% from 2012 to 2017 to reach $88.4 billion by 2017

Bioplastics are plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, or microbiota. Bioplastic can be made from agricultural by-products and also from used plastic bottles and other containers using microorganisms. Common plastics, such as fossil-fuel plastics  are derived from petroleum or natural gas. Production of such plastics tends to require more fossil fuels and to produce more greenhouse gases than the production of biobased polymers (bioplastics). Some, but not all, bioplastics are designed to biodegrade. Biodegradable bioplastics can break down in either anaerobic or aerobic environments, depending on how they are manufactured. Bioplastics can be composed of starches, cellulose, biopolymers, and a variety of other materials.


A process by which microbial organisms transform or alter (through metabolic or enzymatic action) the structure of chemicals introduced into the environment. Basically, organic (carbon-based) material is changed through chemical processes from complex molecules into simpler molecules, eventually returning the molecules into the environment. For example, a banana peel can be reduced from cellulose to water, carbon dioxide gas, and humus in a compost pile.

Biodegradation is nature’s waste management and recycling system. It breaks down everything from yard waste to crude oil. It is a natural process necessary to keep our planet clean and healthy. Unfortunately, the rate at which we are producing waste far outpaces the rate of natural biodegradation, making our current state unsustainable. As a result, landfills have been filling up at record rates, and air, water and soil pollution is increasing.

Recycling & Waste Management of Biopolymers

Biobased biopolymers offer favorable circumstances on the crude materials side as well as on the transfer side through certain promising end-of-life (EOL) choices. Particularly squander transfer with vitality recuperation has an additional advantage, which lies in picking up carbon nonpartisan vitality while permitting various uses after conceivable reusing. The Commission said that the greater part of the manures containing biodegradable polymer materials could be characterized utilizing a hazard evaluation framework at a higher harmfulness level. Biodegradable biopolymer waste can be dealt with by vigorous debasement, fertilizing the soil, or anaerobic assimilation .When biopolymers are treated the soil or processed, their individual components are reused normally, specifically their carbon and hydrogen content. The biggest section of the market, bundling, is relied upon to achieve about 1.7 billion pounds in 2016. The market in 2011 is evaluated at 656 million pounds, making the five-year CAGR 20.5%. The second-biggest fragment, made up of filaments/textures, is relied upon to increment in volume from an expected 134 million pounds in 2011 to 435 million pounds in 2016, for a five-year CAGR of 26.6%.
