Abstract: One of the most crucial ingredients of municipal waste is plastics. Plastic has been posing a problem of disposal and surrounding pollution difficulties because of their non disposable character. To minimize their surrounding influence and making them to be converted during process of organic waste reusable processes, many materials in a little while back been introduced to enhance the nature of being biodegradable in plastics. In the following review, the speed and scale of mineralization process of a wide range of plastics that are commercially obtained alternative materials were sought out during the process of an anaerobic digestion, composting and soil incubation. The extent of biodegradability was evaluated by critically calculating the scale of carbon mineralized during the process from these materials while incubation under the conditions that imitated those three spaces and by testing of the materials by inspect electron micrographic. The outcome showed that during those 660 days of soil incubation, fundamental mineralization was observed for the material of poly-hydroxyalkanoate plastics; plastics that are starch based and for materials which were made from compost. Moreover, only the plastic based on poly hydroxyalkanoate-were biodegraded at a speed that is similar to the positive control. Polymers that are synthetic biodegradable have found more resourceful as well as various biomedical and other applications owing to their tailor able plot or improvement. Biodegradable polymers now have been extensively utilized and extensively encouraged the enlargement of biomedical fields due to the tremendous abilities of being biocompatible and biodegradable. The enlargement of the fields of biotechnology and technological improvement of medical field has imposed higher demands of bio-medical materials. Now a day the biodegradable polymers with novel character and specific properties are on high demand.
