“With the current increase in the price of oil, alternatives are becoming more and more economically relevant in the plastics industry”, says Stefan Krämer, one of the authors of the internet site, which primarily addresses companies that are active within the expanding bioplastics sphere.
Bioplastics are synthetic materials that are produced mainly from renewable primary products. Most bioplastics are biodegradable and can be disposed as organic waste. This fact is also one of the main reasons that bioplastics are economically advantageous: the use of bioplastics avoids high disposal costs, which is especially of interest to manufacturers and consumers of perishable packaging and in the catering and hospitality industry. Bioplastics are versatile and can be used in many different applications.
