Abstract:
    Owning to the great population explosion in Pakistan, the plastic packaging sector is great industrial segment. For fulfilling the consumer needs, plastic manufacturing and supply is increasing leaps
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Plastic is literally at my fingertips all day long in the form of plastic keyboard, plastic framed computer hardware, but where does it goes??It ultimately ends up in landfills. Which cannot be recycled. So Bio plastic is the best innovative form of plastic that can be recycled.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
    22% of Pakistani population is undernourished. With bio plastics; resources could reach the affected areas of Pakistan. Packed products will be recycled and composted; spoilage & shatter free. Packaging is lighter, stronger, heat resistant & flavor saver; blocking harmful landfills.
How will the solution works
    Production of such plastics tends to require more fossil fuels and to produce more green house gases. Secondly it saves the energy during production, for the bioplastics production less amount of energy is required to process the bioplastics making its plastic material delivers a fossil fuel saving of the between 25 and 68 % compared with traditional plastics. Raw material is already available in nature in the form of plant based starch and egg albumin which are the key ingredients in it.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Other packaging companies as they try to come up with other alternatives to save their products. But, our product is different because it does not use chemical preservatives to save the products rather uses Starch based biomass bound with plastic to help with better packaging.
