Biobased Polymers : Properties and Applications in Packaging Paperback / softback
Biobased Polymers: Properties and Applications in Packaging looks at how biopolymers may be used in packaging as a potential green solution.
The book addresses bio-based feedstocks, production processes, packaging types, recent trends in packaging, the environmental impact of bio-based polymers, and legislative demands for food contact packaging materials.
Chapters explore opportunities for biopolymers in key end-use sectors, the penetration of biopolymer based concepts in the packaging market, and barriers to widespread commercialization. As the development of bio-based material is an important factor for sustainably growing the packaging industry, these recent trends in consumer markets are extremely important as we move towards greener packaging.
Hence, this resource is an invaluable addition on the topic.
