Land, and water bodies are affected by plastic materials. Due to its non biodegradability more 
percentage of marine and land creatures have died. For 258 million tons only 35% of plastic materials 
was recycled out of 63% of solid waste which was generated in U.S on 2014.So we need to find an 
alternative method by implementing biochemical material for food packaging applications that could 
eventually decompose the plastic materials. So we planned to prepare a bio composite material which 
has a matrix phase and fibre phase which are of biochemical and natural compounds. The bio composite 
material consist of cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) as a matrix phase and bamboo, groundnut, saw dust, 
tamarind are added as a reinforcement material. After preparing the bio composite material we have to 
conduct various tests for checking its properties. So various tests like tensile test, flexural strength of 
the material, impact test, water absorption test, biodegradability test are conducted for our bio composite 
materials to check its properties. From the experimental results we compared which bio composite 
material is more suitable for food packaging applications and the test results are mentioned below.
