Today, the bag manufacturing market is one of the most visible markets and most known to the public as regards bioplastic.
The trends adopted by the industrialists that pit disposable versions against reusable ones are leaning towards using various bioplastics.
The prohibition for using bags at checkouts or for fruits and vegetables unless they are compostable at home and biobased makes it mandatory to use these materials, and provides several opportunities for their use. In certain cases, the bags may be reusable if they are thicker than 50µm, which allows using exclusively biobased versions like biobased PE.
The garbage bag market is also, for the past several years, an opportunity for using compostable (retrieval of green or organic waste) and biobased polymers.
