Bioplastic (Local) According to Mari (2016), the cellulose that were used in her study were from Abaca fiber. For that being stated, cellulose is present in plant fibers and not just in cell walls where they are commonly found. The extraction of cellulose is also possible. Added by Macuja, Nueva España, and Ruedas (2015), the cellulose that was used in their study were also extracted from the plant fiber. The amount of cellulose that you can get depends on the type of plant that you used and your method of extraction. Agreeing to Mari (2016) Basilia, Lapuz A.R, Lapuz R., Mari, and Torres, stated that cellulose from Abaca plant were extracted using Acid hydrolysis. The used of this process results in increased yield of cellulose. To get large amount of cellulose, it must be 64 % concentration of sulfuric acid. (FOREIGN) Bio-plastics are environmentally friendly as compared to traditional plastics for their production results in the emission of less green house gases such as carbon dioxide, which is one of the prime sources of air pollution and leads to environmental issues such as global warming, climate change, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
