Bioplastics are relatively new in the plastics industry. These plastics are made from renewable biomass sources. Bioplastic means that these plastics are biodegradable and can break down in aerobic and anaerobic environments. They decompose because of their composition from starches, sugars, cellulose and biopolymers and are less harmful to the environment. Thermoplastic starch is the most commonly used bioplastic. This can be found in pill capsules and types of food packaging. Other types of items that use this plastic are carpets and car interiors. With the new trend of ecofriendly product consumption, bioplastic production and manufacturing have gone up 600% since the year 2000. Some examples of bioplastics are polylactic acid (PLA), polycaprolactone (PCL), polyhydroxybutyrate-covalerate (PHBV), and polyesteramide.
