Bioresins: An Environment Friendly Product

vinutha moses, Dr. Archna, Sangam L.


Increased use of synthetic and natural products is releasing harmful toxins into the environment. This leads to the depletion of natural resources and creates environment imbalance. Therefore, awareness is expressed by the media and different government sectors towards environmental sustainability. Industries are targeted, compelled to meet challenges to produce improved environment friendly products with competitive performance. Bioresins are emerging industrial products derived from natural renewable components. Biobased resins made from organic and agro wastes offer a sustainable alternative to synthetic resins.
