Sustainable Plastics Live June 2022: Breaking down bioplastics and biodegradables
Presentation from this month's Sustainable Plastics Live
Sustainable Plastics Editor Karen Laird talks through what bioplastics are and the state in the market.
Bioplastics can help the plastics supply chain reduce its carbon footprint. But did you know that not all bioplastics are biodegradable? Sustainable Plastics Editor Karen Laird explains how plastics and sustainability are not a contradiction in terms, describes the many different types of bioplastics, and explains how they fit into a more circular economy for plastics.
There’s also lots of viewer questions about recycling and biopolymers, and on food-contact applications for post-consumer resins.
