Compostable plastics are the plastics that undergo degradation by the biological processes during composting to yield CO2, water, biomass, inorganic compounds, and at a rate consistent with other known compostable materials. Instead of using plastic made from petrochemicals and fossil fuels, compostable plastics are derived from renewable materials like corn, potato, tapioca starches, cellulose, soy protein, and lactic acid. Compostable plastics are non-toxic and decompose back into carbon dioxide, water, and biomass when composted.


Sustainability and material design for the environment, integration of product design with disposal infrastructure, and composting & sustainable agriculture are the key factors driving the compostable plastics market's growth. New environmental regulations, societal concerns, and growing ecological awareness have triggered the search for new products and processes compatible with the environment. Sustainability, industrial ecology, eco-efficiency, and green chemistry are the new principles guiding the development of the next generation of products and processes. Hence, this has opened up new market opportunities for developing compostable plastics as the next generation of sustainable materials that meet ecological and economic requirements. However, compostable plastics also present challenges and create uncertainty for a wide array of stakeholders. Inconsistencies in product labeling and a lack of accepted definitions for industry terms confuse consumers upon purchasing and discarding them, hence hampering the compostable plastics market's growth.
