Abstract : Bioplastics are plastics made-out of biomass such as sugarcane, corn etc. These compounds are getting more attention to conserve fossil fuels, reduce plastic waste, and reduce CO2 emissions.These substances are being increasingly spotlighted as means to save fossil fuels, plastic wastes and reducing CO2 emission. Biodegradability of these bioplastics have been extensively publicized in the society and demand for packaging is quickly increasing among the food industry and retailers' at large scale. The plastics which are currently available in market are very dangerous as it is non biodegradable. Hence, it is the order of the day that the biodegradable plastics should be produced at large scale and used to replace non- biodegradable plastics. The present articleemphasis all these points regarding their applications, types, production, challenges, fermentation, sustainability, process development and use of cheap substrates for bioplastics production.The latter section of the project endeavours to educate a novel method in the production of biopolymers using Gelatin. Dissimilarities in parameters like plasticizer, polymers, hydrolysis and curing times were extensively tested and the optimum combination was obtained.
