Bio-Plastics Market: Rising Need For Curbing Environmental Degradation To Soar Market Growth

23-Jul-2018 | Zion Market Research

Growing environmental concerns has resulted in plastic ban in most of the countries, thereby provoking a huge demand for bio-plastics. The massive product applications witnessed in grocery bags, disposable cutlery, pots, food containers, bowls, crockery, electronic casings, and straws can be attributed to its biodegradable & low GHG emitting features.

The escalating pollution crisis arising due to the rampant use of plastics along with increasing consciousness pertaining to depletion of fossil fuels has promoted comprehensive search for suitable as well as sustainable alternatives to plastics. Research has proved that the bio-based plastic products can be used to manufacture bio-polyester shirts and weather proof jackets.

Reports state that Parkesine was the first man-made bio-plastic produced from cellulose. Later, scientists had developed bio-plastics from casein and bacterium Bacillus megaterium. In the first half of the twentieth century, Henry Ford made use of soybeans for manufacturing car parts.

In a major boost to the bio-plastics industry, Researchers at International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics are focusing their research on Sorghum and group of microbial minions for producing bio-plastics. They are of the view that Sorghum cultivars such as ICSV 18542 and RVICSH 28 have more biomass yields as well as high ratoonability, thereby making them more preferable for developing bio-plastics over sugarcane bagasse.

One of the researchers working at ICRISAT has claimed sorghum to be more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable material for manufacturing bio-plastics as compared to sugarcane bagasse.

This month, researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology declared to have launched its first car completely manufactured from Bio-plastics. For the record, the weight of the car without batteries is estimated at 360 kg, which is nearly half the mass of a normal car. The chassis of the car is produced from sugars, while its complete body is produced from polylactide acid. Reliable sources claim the automobile is likely to be totally recyclable as well as weather-proof.
