As per available reports about 18 open access journals, 15 Conferences , 16 conference proceedings , 19 Journals 8 National symposiums, 8 Media partners , are presently dedicated exclusively to Bioplastics.
Bioplastics or organic plastics are derived from renewable sources such as starch, vegetable oil and even chicken feathers. Some bioplastics, like the one made from chicken feathers, do biodegrade. Biobased plastics contain both renewable and fossil-fuel-based carbon. The percentage of biobased ingredients and the conditions, under which the biobased product may biodegrade, if at all, vary widely. According to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), a biobased material is: an organic material in which carbon is derived from a renewable resource via biological processes. Biobased materials include all plant and animal mass derived from CO2 recently fixed via photosynthesis, per definition of a renewable resource. Products on the market are made from a variety of natural feedstocks including corn, potatoes, rice, tapioca, palm fiber, wood cellulose, wheat fiber and bagasse. Products are available for a wide range of applications such as cups, bottles, cutlery, plates, bags, bedding, furnishings, carpets, film, textiles and packaging materials. In the US, the percentage of biobased ingredients required for a product to be referred to as biobased, is defined by the USDA on a product-by-product basis. ILSR has recommended that the USDA set a minimum threshold of 50 percent biobased content for products to be considered biobased.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.
