Petroleum derived plastics dominate the food packaging industry even today. These materials have brought a lot of convenience and attraction to agro, food and packaging industry. These materials also have brought along with them problems relating to the safe-disposal and renewability of these materials. Due to the growing concern over environmental problems of these materials, interest has shifted towards the development and promoting the use of “bio-plastics”. Bio-plastic is a term used for sus...

Abstract Developing sustainable routes for producing chemicals and fuels is one of the most important challenges in metabolic engineering. Photoautotrophic hosts are particularly attractive because of their potential to utilize light as an energy source and CO 2 as a carbon substrate through photosynthesis. Cyanobacteria represent the unicellular organisms capable of photosynthesis and CO 2 fixation. While engineering in heterotrophs, such as Escherichia coli , has result in a plethora of tools ...

Abstract The packaging sector has experienced various advances from history to improve product quality and safety. Traditional packaging materials are highly desired in the packaging of goods but their extensive use imposes a negative impact on the environment because of their nonbiodegradable nature. Therefore, efforts are being taken to develop the packaging materials from renewable and bio-based sources. The biodegradable polymer serves all the functions of a package and disintegrates into ec...
Polyurethane (PU) elastomers were prepared from 1-butene metathesized palm oil (PMTAG) polyols in order to study the effect of their molecular structure on the properties of polyurethanes. The chemical structure, thermal degradation, thermal properties, and tensile strength of the PUs were determined using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and texture analysis, respectively. Depending o...

Global biodegradable plastics market accounts for less than 1% of the overall plastics market, however, it is expected to grow at a fast pace over the next 5 years. The market growth is driven by continuous R&D activities, increased environmental awareness, and implementation of stringent environmental regulations. Biodegradable plastics have found their end-use in a variety of commercial applications. It is estimated that packaging and disposable housewares drive the biodegradable market. Foam ...

Abstract null null This study aims to analyze the practicability of forming seaweed films and their viability of enhancing the bioplastic market using new green technologies. Seaweeds can form films either directly or using their derivatives like agar, carrageenan, and alginate. Seaweeds films that are formed directly without chemical treatment are a promising approach but currently, the field is still new and more research are needed. Seaweeds have numerous advantages compared to other biomass,...

Abstract Currently, one of the biggest challenges is to reduce the plastics contamination worldwide. In this scenario, some political, economic and social factors play a very important role in implementing efficient processes to control plastic waste problem. In this work, some of the most recent advances in this field are presented. The eco-design of plastic products, the improvement of legislation for the manufacture, recycling and use of alternative materials, as well as for the intentional a...

Abstract The progression of plastic pollution is a global concern. “Reuse, reduce and recycle” offers a solution to the burdening issue, although not enough to curb the rampant use of plastics. Biodegradable plastics are gaining acceptability in agriculture and food packaging industries; nevertheless, they occupy a rather small section of the plastic market. This review summarizes recent advances in the development of biodegradable plastics and their safe degradation potentials. Here, biodegrada...
