Abstract

There is a shortage of raw materials used for making plastics and this shortage has instigated serious supply issue in the plastic base industry.Unfortunately the unrenewable nature of petroleum is casting even a serious crisis in the future.Other source of raw materials must be developed as soon as possible to overcome this crisis.Worldwide plastic demand is growing thus casting doubt on the future of the industry.This has led researchers on starting various studies to meet the growing demand by the plastic industry and to overcome growing scarcity of petroleum.With the help of modern technology new material such as bioserin was discovered as the alternative source of raw material for the plastic industry.
