Using Corn Cobs to Produce Bioplastics: A Simple and Economical Method
When plastic wastes are dumped in landfills, they interact with water and form hazardous chemicals, and the quality of drinking water may also be affected. Hence, efforts are taken to reduce the use of synthetic plastics and to promote bioplastics. Biodegradable plastics are made from starch, cellulose, chitosan, and protein extracted from renewable biomass. This student project aims to produce bioplastics from corn cobs.
