Biodegradability refers to the ability of materials to decompose completely and return to nature in a short time after disposal.
The world and Governments are calling for the replacement of non-biodegradable recyclable packaging due to its high toxicity, chemical inertness, manufacturing risks and the limited supply of natural resources that have been devastated. Petroleum-based compounds, which are finite, release harmful gases into the atmosphere and are toxic to soil, water and wildlife. Just look at the planet's oceans and rivers to understand. Hemp made from its own pulp can be mixed with other plants, resins and serve sectors such as the manufacture of cars, boats, musical instruments, etc.
Products made from hemp, due to their low environmental impact, recyclability, availability and biodegradability, are gaining fans every day.
The products available on the market have only 30% of plant materials, the rest are synthetic, such as PET bottles. Brazil has to increase the pace and have the product available for the domestic market and to offer it to the world.
Many companies are heavily investing in the replacement of these products. The demand of the population for them, in spite of the increased price, has given momentum to this market. The Mordor Inteligence report informs that the size of the global biodegradable plastic market was estimated at $ 3.27 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.45 by 2026 complemented by biodegradable packaging in agriculture.
