A biodegradable product that breaks down quickly is compostable. Compostable products are made of organic materials that can decompose naturally. The resulting material is rich in minerals. Biodegradable substances include food scraps, cotton, wool, wood, human and animal waste, manufactured products based on natural materials (such as paper, and vegetable-oil based soaps).

Biodegradable products or materials are naturally broken down by biological agents, such as bacteria and fungi, into raw materials. The goal of supplementing biodegradable products in your everyday life is to recycle our natural resources and keep the Earth clean and free of growing landfills.

Advantages of Biodegradable Products:

Biodegradable products are those that can be broken back down into their component parts over time by the action of biological organisms and processes. Paper and textile products are biodegradable, but traditional plastics made from petroleum bases are not. Consumer packaging and disposable eating products made of new biodegradable plastics from corn and other plant bases have numerous environmental and efficiency advantages over non-biodegradable products.

·         Fuel Efficiency

Biodegradable plastic production processes take 65 percent less energy than required to produce petroleum-based plastics, the restaurant supply industry leader in the U.S., making biodegradable plastics the top energy-efficient choice. Biodegradable products are made from renewable resources like corn, sugar cane and potato starch instead of oil: 200,000 barrels of oil a day are presently used in the United States alone in the manufacture of plastic packaging, and significant portions of this use could be eliminated by employing biodegradable plastic products.

·         Less Pollution

Manufacturing biodegradable consumer products produces far less pollution. Because the products can break back down into nontoxic components, they don't cause dangerous chemical leachate that can poison water or off gassing that can pollute the air. Biodegradable plastic consumer products produce 68 percent less greenhouse gasses than petroleum-based plastic products.

·         Compostability

Composting biodegradable plastics along with traditional biodegradable paper products and yard, food and agricultural wastes can turn this trash into rich humic material, which can improve water and nutrient retention and help grow healthier plants with less need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides. At present, biodegradable plastics can only be composted in commercial composting facilities which can maintain high composting temperatures, unlike paper and textile items, which can be composted in a backyard compost bin. But the number of such composting facilities is rising, and municipalities and states around the country are increasing their recycling and composting goals regularly to reduce the quantity of waste being disposed of in expensive landfills. These factors, along with industry developments toward materials that break down more easily, will help increase the advantageous environmental effects of biodegradable products.

·         Take less time to break down than other solid materials

·         Are made from biomass — organic compounds are completely renewable

·         Are better for the environment, dispersing very few greenhouse gases

·         Often require less than half as much energy to manufacture

·         Reduce our dependence on foreign countries’ fossil fuels

·         Reduce the costs of solid waste disposal

·         Divert waste from already overcrowded landfills, thereby reducing groundwater and air pollution via methane

·         Support local, sustainable businesses such as composters

Examples of Biodegradable materials, often referred to as “bio-waste”, include the following:

• Human and animal waste

• Plant products, wood, paper, food waste, leaves, grass clippings

• Remains from the death of living creatures

Packaging is the most common use of biodegradable plastics, followed by fibers, agriculture and injection molding. Demand for eco-friendly packaging made from bio-based plastics is growing at a high rate. Strong demand is expected for products such as polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) and starch-based plastics and by the end of the forecast period the value of the market for biodegradable plastics in packaging will be worth an estimated $2 billion.

Demand for bio plastics is increasing since past decade due to growing awareness concerning environmental conservation, use of bio-based or natural resources for manufacturing materials and formulation of various regulations across countries for effective use of natural resources and waste management. Increased consumer preference towards biodegradable materials coupled with the growing environmental concern is expected to boost the overall growth of the biodegradable packaging market. Biodegradable packaging market is expected to witness the fastest growth, driven by food and beverage packaging. Bio based biodegradable plastics find their application in a variety of sectors, including fibres, medical, packaging, and agriculture. The demand for bio based biodegradable plastics is massive in the packaging sector, and it is anticipated that status quo will be maintained in the next five years as well. Other prominent sectors which will create robust demand for bio based biodegradable market include agriculture and medical. The global bio based biodegradable plastics market is also segmented on the basis of product type and includes PHA, cellulose, polyester, and PLA. Among these segments, the polyester and PLA control a share of more than 60% of the global bio based biodegradable plastics market. The prime reasons for the high demand for these bio based biodegradable plastics types is that these sturdy and cost-effective.

By application, the biodegradable plastics market segmentation includes packaging, bottle manufacturing, fibers, agriculture and injection molding. Packaging and container production applications are expected to hold a larger market share as compared to other applications. The high production scale of packaging and container manufacturing coupled with the growing environmental concerns with regards to the disposal of these products is expected to drive the biodegradable market.
