Abstract: The replacement of fossil raw materials by renewable alternatives is imperative. Renewable, biodegradable, and compostable polymers are options to be developed and adopted. Embedded in this concept, the present study evaluates whether biopolymers are sustainable alternatives to replace traditional polymers used in packaging, such as polyet...

Abstract: When Eric Fawcett and Reginald Gibson discovered polyethylene accidentally, they never realized how useful their discovery will be for mankind, similar to how Charles Goodyear’s idea of adding sulphur to polyisoprene would revolutionize the tire and other rubber industries. Although those discoveries centuries ago have never realized their current impact,...
