Abstract—Plastic is a broad name given to different polymers with high molecular weight, which can be degraded by various processes. Biodegradation of plastics by microorganisms and enzymes seems to be the most effective process. When plastics are used as substrates for microorganisms, evaluation of their biodegradability should not only be based on their chemical structure, but also on their physical properties (melting point, glass transition temperature, crystallinity, storage modulus, etc.). Bio-plastics are a green and sustainable alternative to traditional Bio-plastics or organic plastics are a form of plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable oil, corn starch, pea starch or micro biota. Bio-plastics are 100% biodegradable, compostable or recyclable. Biodegradable plastics are seen by many as a promising solution to this problem, because they are environmentally-friendly. 

Index Terms—bio-based plastics, recyclable, environmentally-friendly
