The usage of biologically degradable plastics is a simple step to improve protection of our environment. The goal of our project is to test suitability of many different materials for production of biologically degradable plastics. We also compare their heat, electric and mechanical qualities with qualities of chemically-modifitied polymers. Plastics, which are made from pure natural materials have clearly advantage in their health and ecological harmlessness. Our materials for production ecological plastics are mainly starch and milk, which are renewable sources in nature. For production of classic plastics are mainly used unrenewable source – petroleum. Final ecological plastics can well replace harmfull plastics made by chemical modification of polymers in many different areas.
