Dutch aim for bioplastics dominationPosted on December 10, 2012 by DrRossH in BioPlastics
The words biobased plastics and sustainable are quite independent words. Often they are used in the same sentence when in fact they are quite incompatible more often than not.
Bioplastic is a plastic molecule made from plants. It does nothing to address the disposal issues of a plastic. A PET made from plants is just as non biodegradable as a PET made fom oil. We future generations can all be smothered in plastic bags and bottles and we are going to have to tell then we were a sustainable generation? I think they will be smarter than that.
