The aim of the research is to apply bio-based materials, which could be produced for example from sugar and vegetable oils. These bio-based polymers are usually biodegradable. Ideally, if no mineral oil is needed in production process. In addition, there will be no extra CO2 emission in the whole product-life cycle.
According to Dr. Stadlober, plastic bags have the best CO2-balance compared with paper bags and textile bags, which require plenty of water and cotton in production process. It would be better to waste plastic bags after at least three-time use. Moreover, they can be easily recyclable, if they were well collected.
