What is tapioca?
Tapioca is one kind of potato, from the root of the plant. There are many types such as cassava, mandioca, boba, yucca, etc.

Where is tapica from?
Native to the tropical area, most of the growth is in Southeast Asia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Southern China and other hot and humid areas of the world.

How tapioca gets to be a Bio-Polymer

Tapioca becomes a starch by adding some "chemical agents", through sophisticated chemical processing equipment. Through the effect of the high pressure / high temperature, the content and organization are changed. This results in a strong post-polymerization forming a waterproof, plastic feature with heat resistance properties. Worldwide it's called “Ecoplas”, ”Green Plas”.

Tapioca roots can also be used to manufacture biodegradable plates, containers, cups, and bags. A polymer resin produced from the plant is a viable plastic substitute that is not only biodegradable, but is also compostable, renewable, and recyclable. The resulting product biodegrades in less than one year as opposed to thousands of years for traditional plastics.
