What are Biopolymers ?!?

Biopolymers are materials made by living creatures, and include chitin, lignin, cellulose, protein fiber, and plant polyester, to name a few. Much of the emerging materials for plastic substitutes are made from biopolymers.

Because these materials are made directly from living creatures, they are expected to be compostable, completely biodegradable, and ideally marine-degradable within a reasonable timeframe, but additional research and policy guidance need to be conducted to provide assurance.

Just like with bio-derived plastics, biopolymers can be processed in a manner that makes them have the same long-lasting characteristics as petroleum-based plastics.
