Things you should know about biodegradable plastic.

Biodegradable plastics come in different varieties with varying uses. The three most commonly used types are polylactic acid (PLA), thermoplastic starches (TPS), and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). As the ‘poly’ prefix for each suggests, they’re all long chained polymers formed from simple monomers.

Biodegradable polymers are mostly produced from plant-based materials. PLA is obtained from fermented starch, which is itself obtained from corn, cassava, sugar cane or sugar beet. TPS is produced by heating starch from plant materials with water and mixing with plasticisers. PHAs are distinct in that they’ re extracted from bacteria, which produce it by fermenting sugar or lipids obtained from waste or plant-based feedstocks.
