Biodegradable plastic is a material that undergoes decomposition by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi, transforming into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass. The duration of this breakdown process varies depending on the specific type of plastic and the disposal conditions. Various biodegradable plastics are available, each with unique properties and decomposition mechanisms. Some are derived from plant-based sources such as cornstarch or sugarcane. In contrast, others are synthetically produced polymers engineered to break down under specific environmental conditions such as sunlight exposure, high temperatures, or oxygen availability. The applications of biodegradable plastics are extensive, encompassing industries such as packaging, agriculture, medicine, and consumer goods. Their utilization aids in reducing the environmental impact of traditional plastics and supports sustainable practices across various sectors.
