Biopolymers and Biocomposites

The main two groups of biopolymers are nonbiodegradable and biodegradable, according to degradation. Other classifications according to the origins of biopolymers are bio-based and fossil fuel-based. The main sources of bio-based polymers are animals, plants, and microorganisms. Biocomposites offer a significant non-food market for agro residue-derived resins and fibres towards development of a new generation of biocomposite and biopolymer-based materials with possible applications in other areas.
