Özet Every year, truckloads of package trash were thrown by people. Plastic polymers have one of the biggest portions in these disposals. There will be no place to dispose them since their degradation time in nature is very long. It is clear that fossil fuel resources should be replaced with renewable resources. There is a new polymer that can solve this problem called Polylactic acid (PLA), an affordable, recyclable, innovative packaging material made from renewable resources. Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable polymer derived from lactic acid. It is made from 100 % renewable resources such as plants (corn, sugar beets, wheat and other starch-rich products). PLA has flavor and odor barrier characteristics similar to the plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) used for soft drinks and many other food products. Some other properties of PLA are as well as or better than PET or other petroleum –based plastics. PLA is a nonvolatile, odorless polymer and is classified as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. Polylactide (PLA) films have good potential for use in environment friendly packaging for foods, particularly in view of their biodegradability, physical properties (comparable to synthetic polymers) and decreasing manufacturing costs. In this study, as an alternative packaging material of a natural packaging material called PLA was described, some properties were given in detail and some comparisons were made with other packaging materials.
