DRDO Bio-degradable bag

Polythene bags/bottles have become persistent threats to environment. The pollution caused by all pervasive polyethylene based packing material is having inadvertent impact on nature.

Keeping in view of ill effects of pervasive usage of plastics and polyethylene bags, various options are being researched to replace these hazardous materials. In such effort, scientists from DRDO have developed bio-degradable bags to replace single use polyethylene bags. The single use bags is based on a formulation developed using starch and food graded materials.
