Biodegradable bags mostly manufactured by using corn-based materials. These bags are strong and reliable, and can also be manufactured by using paper, organic materials, or polycaprolactone.
Moreover, based on the application the trash bags are further classified as industrial, institutional and retail use. In the industrial sector, these bags are utilized by biomedical services or pharma industries and others to dispose the hazardous waste. Institutional segment caters to the school, training/ coaching centers, colleges, and universities.
