What is bioplastics?
Bioplastics are either: 1) made from a renewable resource such as corn or sugarcane (biobased), 2) break down completely via a natural process (biodegradable), or 3) are both biobased and biodegradable. They are used in the same ways as other plastics: packaging, agriculture, medical, automotive parts, 3D printing and more. Globally, over 1.7 million metric tons were produced in 2014 and contributed to $4.4 billion and 32,000 jobs in the U.S. Bioplastics are one of the fastest growing sectors of the plastics industry, with an anticipated 20-30% annual growth. Biodegradable plastics also reduce the amount of trash that is sent to landfills.
