At present, with an increase in the human population, the amount of plastic consumption has multiplied, and with it, pollution levels are alarmingly increasing day by day. Plastic can be labelled a disaster as it threatens the whole world. Since this is a big problem for our environment, there may be a call to find a change for traditional plastics. Therefore, bioplastics are the perfect option as they can be synthesized from various active biodegradable wastes. Bioplastics are formed from various renewable biomasses, including starch, biopolymers, cellulose, and aggregates of various compounds. These plastics can be easily synthesized and can be easily degraded compared to conventional plastics. So, the synthesis of it becomes a crucial challenge.
