Less emission from hybrid plastic

California-based bioplastic manufacturer Cereplast said the use of its Biopropylene hybrid resin (which can replace up to 50% petroleum-based plastic content) emits 42% less greenhouse gas emission compared to the use of regular polypropylene.

In a study by a professor from Michigan State University, he found that approximately 1.82 kilograms of carbon dioxide are produced for each kilogram of Cereplast' Biopropylene used, compared to 3.14 kilograms of carbon dioxide emitted for the same amount of polypropylene.
