The research has been performed to understand the problem of pollution caused by non- degradable polymers in various parts of India, which is responsible for several environmental problems and health diseases. The research is providing a sustainable way to solve this problem with the help of existing biopolymers and cost effective ways to produce the eco-friendly plastics from the industrial food waste in order to obtain polysaccharides and sugars, instead of contributing to the global food crisis. The biotechnology, Mutagenesis, has excellent solutions involving synthetic biology for the synthesis of genetically modified strains that has been grown on renewable feedstock for improving the production of PHAs and extraction of lignin from cellulose in suitable ways. The motive of this research is to aware people of the hazards of using plastics and to inspire them into opting to use the sustainable way, with the utilization of eco-friendly plastics to maintain nature’s balance. The process of biodegradation and composting has been briefly explained to acquire deep knowledge about end of life options for biodegradable polymers in suitable environments without leaving toxic residue behind. The idea of using aerobic and anaerobic digesters for bio-waste and biopolymers is one of the best options to reuse the biomass in energy conversion techniques rather than to end up in landfill. In addition, various experiments/methods have been discussed that enable the efficient use of biopolymers as this could be the best approach to solve the problem of marine pollution.
