France’s race to create bio-plastics made from natural materials

As France moves to completely ban single-use plastics by 2020, startups are coming up with a new range of bio-plastics – an alternative to plastic made from various natural materials.

These alternatives include plastic produced from seaweed and algae, sugarcane and even milk – designed to try and replace harmful oil-based plastics.

Using biological materials allows these new plastic products to decompose over shorter time periods after use, in some cases, cutting decomposition time from more than 500 years to a mere four months.
