Abstract

Since 1940s, plastics have become very significant and they are replacing glass, wood, metals and other constructional materials in many industrial and domestic application. Unfortunately chemical composition and some features are particularly dangerous for environment. Therefore, in recent years there has been a marked increase in interest in biodegradable materials, especially in biodegradable polymer materials for use in packaging, agriculture, medicine and other areas. Biocomposites could reduce the use of synthetic polymer and produce positive effects for environment and economics.
