Abstract: Abstract Here we propose the use of Corn and Rice Starch as a material of choice to manufacture head caps. Apart from Corn and Rice Starch we can also use chitosan, cellulose and protein extracted from renewable biomass, but in our research proposal we will restrict our discussion to Corn and Rice Starch, to which we can add other supplementary ingredients which would further improve the properties of the finished product in terms of its comfort during use and, it is physical appearance. One of the most important advantages of these caps is that they degrade to water and carbon dioxide on their own when not disposed properly, thereby not posing any serious environmental threat. We have chosen Corn and Rice Starch because of its easy availability, low cost, as well as its ability to degrade to relatively harmless products. Our prime goal here is to basically come up with a product that causes least damage to the surroundings. In addition to this other parameter under consideration is eased to manufacture and final cost of the head caps. These bioplastics could prove to be a revolution in the green plastic world. The property of degradability is what makes them unique and separates them from the rest of the plastics. They certainly would not cause any pollution as their composition is completely from biomass which comprises of organic matter only and is free of toxic materials. It also rules out the possibility of damage to the marine flora and fauna as they comprise biomass only. This research proposal also involves surveys and statistical analysis of the current situation where we are using synthetic plastic and how scenario changes as we move to bioplastics as an alternative approach. Here we will also discuss the future outcomes and the pros and cons of our product.
