    schema:reviewBody ""As we begin to run out of landfill space and turn towards a greener way of living, we need to find new biodegradable materials which are recyclable and which can be disposed of efficiently. Thermoplastic starch is a newly developed biodegradable material made from renewable sources, which is optimal in view of sustainability. It has huge potential in various applications including packaging, controlled release and disposable products (e.g. drugs). It satisfies all EU environmental regulations and can also be safely applied to the food sector." "This monograph introduces this new green material, which is available in abundance and can be created at a relatively low cost to different specifications. It brings together many important areas including production and applications of biopolymeric material, the fundamental knowledge and practical applications, and includes valuable experimental case studies, which can be directly used in industrial practice. Literature which is scattered across many journals and websites is brought together to enable the reader to gain an understanding of this new material."--Jacket." ;
