Plastics are manmade long chain polymeric molecules which are resistant against microbial attack and become part of parcel of today life. It turns out to be imperative component in agriculture as different plastics are used for various purposes namely plasticulture, polyhouses, mulches, packaging container, shrink film wrappers, etc. Plastics have replaced paper and cellulose-based products for packaging because of their strength, lightness, resistance to water and most water borne… 

Preparation and Characterization of Biodegradable Plastics Out of Food Wastes as Prospective and Eco-Friendly Medical Devices

Plastics are one of the most important petrochemical based polymers widely used for a variety of purposes. Most of these polymers are oil-based and are made by either addition or condensation

Utilization of Waste Banana Peel for Synthesis of Biopolymeric Film

Biopolymeric films are made from renewable resources, such as potatoes, soy, corn, yam, sugarcane, wheat, and vegetable oil. The aim of this research is to prepare biopolymeric film from a

Sustainable Management Strategies: Thailand’s Sustainable Plastic-management Leading the Thai Plastic Industry Towards Becoming a Bio-plastic Hub

Plastic pollution is a major environmental problem in the world, and Thailand is one of many countries faced with increasing plastic and foam waste problems. Plastic pollution affects canals, rivers

The bio degradability of the membrane was proven using soil burial test, which observed that 75% in red soil & 69.9% in garden soil makes these bio polymers a suitable antibiotic control membrane.

CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES OF BIOPLASTICS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Most plastics that are commercially used today are petroleum based, and can take more than a century to degrade. Under combustion, plastics release cancer causing carcinogenic chemicals that are

Edible hydrocolloids as sustainable substitute for non-biodegradable materials

This review addresses the importance of natural edible hydrocolloids, materials that can be used to formhydrocolloid gel, their properties, synergistic interactions of hydrocollenoids and various applications in food and biomedical fields.
