VIDEO STORY - The biospife – a spoon-knife utensil for eating kiwifruit – is made from an innovative bioplastic material developed through a partnership between ZESPRI and Scion. The biospife demonstrates that kiwifruit residues can be incorporated into a compostable bioplastic material for use on standard plastics processing equipment.

ARTICLE - Biodegradability, compostability and bioplasticS -   Bioplastics are a form of plastic that can be made from renewable bio-based resources. Many bioplastic materials are designed to be biodegradable, and some are designed to be compostable. These properties are important for the functionality of the end product and for its disposal.
