Renewability is linked to the concept of sustainable development. The UN World Commission on “Environment and Development in our Future” says sustainability as the development which meets the needs of the present time without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
About 99% of the 311 million tons of plastic produced yearly is still made from oil across the world.
The increasing menace of plastic waste across the world force us to think of a sustainable biodegradable plastic which supports the environment and can safely dispose of and recycled.
