For instance, in August 2021, the Indian Government decided to ban most single-use plastics by July 2022 to reduce pollution and mitigate the environmental impact. Various leading companies are also increasingly developing innovative biodegradable plastics with enhanced properties. Such developments are likely to increase the potential use of biodegradable plastics in applications, including packaging and consumer goods.
