Sustainability and Bioplastics


Plastics have proven to be the most used material for centuries. New products and innovations are surfacing now and then. As the need for this versatile material increases, its necessary to make plastics more sustainable and circular.

Manufacturers, developers and major OEMs are all focusing on bio-based polymers, bioplastics and nature-inspired plastic products to close the loop of circularity. Not only the manufacturers are producing sustainable products and raw materials but they are also focused on reclaiming the plastic waste generated during the production cycle.

Industry giants and government are together initiating measures to make our future sustainable. Researchers and scientists too are finding breakthroughs all around the world.
