There is one thing we cannot deny and that’s the fact that people have been pretty careless in the use of conventional plastics around the world, endangering the natural environment around us. From plastics in landfills to the Great Pacific garbage patch, there are a number of ways we are actively destroying our environment and we often ignore the facts.
Plastics are not only capable of releasing their toxins into the environment, but they will take a pretty long time to decompose. Thanks to some research and improvements in green technologies we are finally facing a turnabout in the face of bioplastics, which are capable of more rapid degradation with less harmful side effects for the environment. They are currently used in a number of fields in industry around the world, from retail to many others due to their unique and useful properties.
Bioplastics also have climate neutrality due to a number of reasons, as we will explain up ahead. The one thing worth noting is that the raw materials derived from using plants are climate neutral because of their safe degradation over the course of time. If you want to have a completely climate neutral material you will however need to make the entire process of creation safe for the environment. The raw materials used and collected, the phase of processing them as well as their use and disposal will need to be safe and secure in every way for a material to be truly climate neutral.
A lot of the ways we obtain materials are often harmful to the environment, such as the use of nitrous oxide used by fertilizing and other even less pleasant ways such as hydraulic fracturing or the sensory overload of a landfill. If a company does stick to a sustainable model when it comes to production and packing procedures, then the end result will not only be beneficial to the environment, but also to the company reputation as well among other things.
Biodegradable bioplastics can be made from a number of raw materials as long as they have renewable origins, making a closed carbon cycle as a result of their creation. The biomass needed for this production however can be made by things such as the composting of plant life, which makes them much easier to deal with in terms of CO2 production. Even when bioplastics end up being incinerated for one reason or another, the CO2 produced from it will be pretty much the same as what was used for the composting of the plants they were made from.
Regardless of that however their creation still requires a controlled industrial environment and base to make it happen. Renewable resources such as bioplastics will greatly help in staying independent from petroleum products around the world, especially due to the increase of oil demands and the fact that most of the world’s oil supplies are now literally in the middle of a dangerous war zone.
