Bioplastics are biodegradable and / or bioderived. But biodegradable and bio-derived are two different and independent classifications.
Are bioplastics biodegradable?
Some fossil plastics, such as PBAT, are biodegradable; some bioderived plastics such as bioPE, are non-degradable; plastics like PHA, TPS and PLA are both bioderived and biodegradable.
