Bioplastics - what, where and how much?

The term ‘bioplastic’ can easily confuse as it can refer to a both product’s origins and properties. A bio-based bioplastic is produced from renewable raw materials. A biodegradable bioplastic must biodegrade according to the relevant European standard EN13432 (see box, p 44 ). Bio-based bioplastics are not necessarily biodegradable, while some biodegradable bioplastics are derived from fossil fuel.
