A composite biopolymer was produced with the inclusion of calcium alginate, agar-agar, and starch.

During experiments, it demonstrated high strength indicators with a relatively thin film and resistance to acidic, alkaline conditions and high temperatures. The biopolymer breaks down quickly and readily in the soil.
