Background: The European strategy for plastics focuses on adjusting the EU regulations to the fulfilment of circular economy tasks. Circular economy is an approach that will soon lead to considerable changes in numerous branches of modern economy. To a large extent, they will also affect the packaging industry.

Methods: A particular interest has been attracted by aliphatic polyesters such as polylactide (PLA) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA). This work presents the bioplastic market and the selected examples of the latest solutions in bioplastic packaging materials. In the near future, the presented bioplastics have a chance to become some of the most desirable packaging materials

Results and conclusion: Bioplastics seem to be an alternative to conventional plastics used for packaging production. As the focus shifts to creation of sustainable environment and prevention of plastic waste disposal in the environment, the production of bioplastics has gained much attention due to their biodegradability.

Keywords: bioplastics, packaging materials, circular economy
