Handbook of Biopolymers: Advances and Multifaceted Applications

1st Edition

Shakeel Ahmed, Suvardhan Kanchi, Gopalakrishnan Kumar
October 23, 2018

Biopolymers have the potential to cut carbon emissions and reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The carbon dioxide released when they degrade can be reabsorbed by plants, which makes them close to carbon neutral. Biopolymers are biodegradable and some are compostable, too. This book presents...
