Starch-based plastic is a kind of plastic product made from starch as the main raw material, which is modified and plasticized and then blended with other polymers. It is a kind of bioplastic. Starch-based bioplastics can be divided into two categories: bio-based plastics and biodegradable plastics.
Starch-based biodegradable plastic is generally a blend of modified starch and biodegradable polyester. It can be completely biodegradable, compostable, and has no environmental pollution.
