SUMMARY

Biodegradable plastics are plastics made from plant starches or gelatins/agars

They are more environment friendly compared to petroleum or natural gasses made plastics since they can easily decompose as an organic waste and hence provides the circle of environmental conservation

Bio plastics are composed of organic matter such as starch(cornstarch),Gelatin or Agar and Vinegar therefore have less to no negative effects to the environment and human life as sometimes can be edible



OBJECTIVE

The key objective of this idea is to improvise more on the use of biodegradable plastics(Bioplastics) by making them available in the market at a low cost


PRODUCTION

Bio plastics can easily be made in a home kitchen

By using the organic ingredients

•Distilled Water

•Glycerol

•Cornstarch

•White Vinegar

•Food Coloring (optional)

•Gelatin or Agar

By mixing the ingredients listed above the mixture obtained is then heated at a medium heat level for 10-15minutes then left to cool for 2-3days



PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH PETROLEUM MADE  PLASTICS

Petroleum and Natural gasses made plastics have so many problem to the environment

They lead to environmental degradation due to the day to day use of plastics in packaging,construction and others

Petroleum made plastics

Despite of their effective use they have negative effects in our lives as they hardly decompose and lead to

•Environmental harm

•Chemical risk

•Chocking hazard

•Durability (decompose slowly)


SUCCESS FACTORS(PRO’S)

This project will be successive because

1:These plastics are easily made by Organic matter hence they are cheap to make

2:They are easily degradable and hence conserves the environment

3:We have a smart marketing and advertising group and therefore will implement the use of bioplastics over petroleum made plastics    



MISSION

The main Aim of this project is to implement the use of bioplastics by making it available in markets

These bioplastics target all people of the society from children to adults

And they will be available at a lower price compared to petroleum made plastics


NB:This project will base more on Bioplastics used for packaging

Cool idea Albert. Will you be kind enough to post a home made video of your innovative bio plastic alternative in action? You list some home made ingredients that can be turned to these alternate plastics. Wondering if you could show us a demo of you actually "manufacturing" these alternative plastics? Best of luck
