To mark the final day of COP27 – the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference – we spoke to Research Associate, Dr Carly Fletcher, about the potential for bioplastics to help reduce the impacts of plastic pollution.

Bioplastics are plastics made from biological substances as opposed to petroleum or are materials that can biodegrade – making them more sustainable than conventional plastic materials, which are causing a great deal of harm to the planet.

Dr Fletcher discusses the project she is involved in, which is looking at how bioplastic products can be developed and implemented in a safe and sustainable way.
