Biodegradable Packaging: It may sound Corny But. . . .

The raw biodegradable packaging materials offered within the market are based on plants such as corn as well as other natural elements. The biodegradable packaging found within the market so far is environmentally-friendly and meets all recycling regulations. It may be said, that biodegradable packaging provides the consumer with improved characteristics relative to overall function. The biodegradable packaging in today's market is becoming more and more relative since in the last decade there has been an increase in the cost of petrochemicals. This amounts to approximately a cost increase of thirty to eighty percent for traditional types of plastics. Additionally, there are other unique ways to produce biodegradable packaging: one example is by way of multi-layering with respect to films. It may be further stated that as of the present date the biodegradable packaging market appears to address a very niche market: it has been able to realize ten percent of market share within the continent of Europe. It will Be Pricey to Produce Biodegradable Packaging It will not be no walk in the park to assure the future of biodegradable packaging as it is estimated seven billion Euros are needed in order to construct bioplastic manufacturing facilities. Also in order to promote the idea of bioplastics it will be necessary to introduce greater legislation in regard to it. So far, in comparison to biofuels there is far less support of raw materials with respect to biodegradable packaging. In other words, certainly as of to date a larger market is needed in order to manufacture biodegradable packaging on a more extensive basis. This also means a great amount of start-up capital as alluded to previously will be required. There are different forms of materials used in the manufacture of biodegradable packaging. Probably the most significant are corn-based polymers. There is also a biodegradable plastic made from hardened caster oil and acetic acid. This biodegradable material is completely colorless and presents no odor. It is believed bioplastics will grow at a rate of twenty percent per year even though the industry has yet to be exploited at the proper levels. With respect to plastic packaging, it appears biodegradable will be the wave of the future. Many of the major countries are expressing their interest and realize the potential cost-savings down the road in using biodegradable products as well as the safety aspect they present to the environment. And once again, with time, it is hoped the trend will improve significantly with a greater market share realizing the functionality and cost-effectiveness in using biodegradable packaging materials.
