Handbook of biopolymers and biodegradable plastics pdf
Handbook of Bioplastics and Biocomposites Engineering Applications | Wiley Online BooksSynthetic polymers are used extensively. Combustion thermal recycling is a preferred route of disposal, at it removes waste, however, CO 2 emissions arise. Biobased polymers, by contrast, are made from renewable resources. A second class of biopolymers for technical applications is biodegradable, being produced from conventional or renewable feedstock. Also, composites can contain natural fibers such as sisal or hemp. Biobased polymer additives, e. Renewable feedstock reduces the carbon footprint of the plastics produced.

Cross-linking of starch and zein mixtures and of soy proteins have shown that the tensile strength and water resistance of the plastics can be increased. Plastics made from dialdehyde starch and zein mixtures displayed particularly improved water resistance.
