On 19th January 2020, a seminar was held in our department (Soil and Environmental Sciences, University of Barishal, Bangladesh) and an effective session regarding Biodegradable Materials was conducted by Saiful Paiker Sir, A Navy Officer and Bio-Economist of Bangladesh.

This is a biodegradable plastic bag in my hand. The bag is made from corn starch. If we dump the bag in soil, that will be decomposed within a very short time. On the other hand, if we dump the so-called plastic bag in soil, that will take many years to be decomposed, even more than 400 years can be taken to be degraded. I hope, the research, implementation, production, and use of Biodegradable Materials will be extended in our country, Bangladesh as well as throughout the world.
