Description

Biopolymers are polymers that are generated from renewable natural sources. They are often biodegradable and not toxic to produce. Therefore, they offer far-reaching environmental advantages. Biopolymers can also be made from a variety of natural materials. Because of the advantages of biopolymers, the research community is doing extensive work in an effort to bring about viable commercial products. This report takes you into these laboratories to give you a view of what's really occurring in this field.
