Abstract:

Plastics are widely used for manufacturing of packaging materials because of their performance and ease in production. With the advent of food processing industries there is a great demand for petroleum based packaging materials for food applications. However, because of their resistance to biodegradation, increased use of plastics has created serious ecological problems to the environment. Moreover burning these plastic materials produce toxic gases which are very much injurious to both flora and fauna. Food industry is a major consumer of plastic as a packing material for the food items. As Biopolymers easily degrade in the environment, they can be used as a solution to the problems posed by plastics and also mimic the properties of conventional polymers. Instead of using these typical plastic materials biodegradable materials can be more effectively used to protect the food items and also prevent the degradation of our environment.
