In this era, we have to focus on biodegradable plastics and the trending one is bio-plastic “a new gen plastic”. Bioplastics are plastic derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, or micro biota, and other bio wastes. Here we are focusing on synthesis of bio-plastic from bio- wastes such as sugarcane baggase and mixture fruit pulp which includes jackfruit, banana peel, mango, nutmeg, duranian seeds. The use of bioplastics offers significant advantages not only in an ecological sense but also in an economical sense. Types of Bioplastics are Starch-based plastics ,Cellulose-based plastics, Polylactic acid (PLA) ( a transparent plastic produced from cane sugar or glucose), Poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) ( a polyester produced by certain bacteria processing glucose, corn starch or wastewater and Bio-derived polyethylene.
