What is a bioplastic?


The word "bioplastic" can refer to:

● a biosourced (also called biobased) plastic, which is derived from a renewable resource (particularly a plant material) > this was used for our new Oriculi,

and/or

● a biodegradable plastic that will break down into substances that are harmless for the environment at the end of its life. 

At present, there are:

- bioplastics that are 1 to 100% biobased, BUT NOT biodegradable,  

- bioplastics that are made from fossil fuels BUT ARE biodegradable,

- bioplastics that are partly biobased and partly made from fossil fuels AND biodegradable,

- bioplastics that are 100% percent derived from renewable resources AND biodegradable.
