Biopolymers are renewable, sustainable materials similar to plastic, and some are also compostable.
Jamplast is a premier bioplastics distributor in the United States and offers three lines of biopolymer thermoplastics materials that are custom formulated for specific applications:
Biopolymers are renewable, because they are made from plant materials which can be grown year on year indefinitely. These plant materials come from agricultural non food crops. Therefore, the use of biopolymers would create a sustainable industry. In contrast, the feedstocks for polymers derived from petrochemicals will eventually run out. In addition, biopolymers have the potential to cut carbon emissions and reduce CO2 quantities in the atmosphere: this is because the CO2 released when they degrade can be reabsorbed by crops grown to replace them: this makes them close to carbon neutral.
