Biodegradable products or materials are naturally broken down by biological agents, such as bacteria and fungi, into raw materials. The goal of supplementing biodegradable products in your everyday life is to recycle our natural resources and keep the Earth clean and free of growing landfills. The biodegradability of natural fibres led to their use in nonpermanent short-term geotechnical applications (6 months to 10 years) to fulfil the technical requirements of limited-life geotextiles.

The short life of natural geotextiles is a matter of concern for end users but their eco-compatibility gives them an edge over man-made geotextiles.

Introduction. As an important biomaterial for human hard tissue replacement and repair, bone repair materials are widely applied in bone surgery, orthopedics and dentistry,,.The number of patients with bone defects induced by traumas, inflammations and tumors are enormous, so the requirement for bone replacement is also by: Waste material composed primarily of constituent parts that occur naturally, are able to be decomposed by bacteria or fungi, and are absorbed into the ecosystem.

Wood, for example, is biodegradable. The term Biodegradable Plastics refers to a material that maintains its mechanical strength during practical use but break down into low-weight compounds and non-toxic byproducts after their use. This breakdown is made possible through an attack of microorganisms on the material, which is typically a non-water-soluble polymer.

Such materials can be obtained through chemical synthesis. "Green Plastics introduces the new generation of biodegradable plastics—bioplastics—whose components are derived mostly from renewable raw materials. For anyone interested in an introduction to 'green plastics,' this is the entrance key."—Ann-Christine Albertsson, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, and editor, Biomacromolecules.
