Innovation and trends in bioplastics

Research into bioplastics continues to make progress and significant growth is expected in the world bioplastics market in coming years. This increase is due to the need for companies to offer sustainable solutions to consumers who are more and more demanding, as well as the application possibilities of bioplastics, especially in the packaging, transport and mobility industries.
