The mystery of bioplastics

Plastic bags’ disposal and waste issues are under scrutiny all over the world but is bioplastic really the solution? There are buzzing questions whether some of the bioplastics currently being offered in the market are 100% biodegradable or maybe they’re just partially degradable. Some of them are being labeled as renewable – what the heck is the meaning of that?

Hopefully, some of these questions can be answered by BASF, which just released their podcast this week about bioplastics. If you still have questions, you can always email them at chemicalreporter@basf.com.
