    Hello Muhammad, how are you? I hope you and your family are well and safe! Here everything is fine.

    This is a really interesting theme, and beforehand I suggest you, in a close future, to check all the videos from the Global Undergraduate Student Video Competition, a competition held by AIChE, where students create videos to teach high school student a little bit about a specific theme and the application of a chemical engineer in this area. This year's theme is "The circle of life: plastics edition", and I'm pretty sure some students will be talking about biodegradable plastic, and it can, perhaps, give you a new view on the area, or maybe teach you something you didn't know. Also, it's great to support the students' videos. I don't know if it is already available online, but if it isn't, it will be soon.

    I found a few websites where they discussed this theme, and I think it's worth taking a look:

    I think these can give you a pretty good overview of this subject, and can direct you to the area that you'll be most interested. Don't hesitate to search online, find papers and really dive into the subarea you liked the most. It's a beautiful area and definetely there is a lot of space for it to grow in the world.

    Feel free to message or e-mail me with any doubts! I wish you the best and good luck.

    Best regards,
