Abstract

Plastic are essentially a by-product of petroleum refining and its industry is considered one of the most essential industries because plastic, today, is practically ubiquitous. Right from sheets, rods, building blocks and domestic products. But extreme use of plastics can lead to damaging effects and degradation of these plastic requires more than 500 years to decompose completely, releasing toxic elements in the environment. It also affects human by destroying thyroid hormone axis or hormone levels. Thus, the biodegradable plastic becomes the encouraging result to solve all this problem. The objective of this study was to produce biodegradable plastic from banana peels as a substitute for the conventional plastic and to prove that the starch in the banana peel could be used in the production of the biodegradable plastic. Degradation of bioplastic in soil was determined. The physical parameters of soil were tested by growing moong seeds in the soil containing biodegradable plastic and compared with natural soil. The physical parameters of soil and plant such as heavy metals were also determined. Based on all the testing that was carried out, the biodegradable plastic from banana peels was found to be the best and ecofriendly than synthetic plastic. Hence, it can be used in the industry for various application such as molding and packaging, at the same time rescuing the environment from potential harm by synthetic plastics.
