Biodegradable plastics are a kind of polymer materials made from biomass or its derivatives existing in nature through a specific process, and their core feature lies in their ability to be degraded by microorganisms (including bacteria, fungi, algae, etc.) under suitable environmental conditions, and ultimately converted into carbon dioxide, water and biomass, which will be returned to the natural recycling system. Compared with traditional petroleum-based plastics, biodegradable plastics aim to reduce persistent pollution to the environment, especially soil and marine ecosystems, and serve as one of the effective ways to solve the problem of "white pollution". Biodegradable plastics have the following applications:

  • Packaging industry
  • Agriculture
  • Healthcare
  • Consumer goods and personal care
  • Other areas
