Due to the rising demand for food and feed, agricultural waste increases, while plastic pollution increases due to hostile human activities. The sustainable way to utilize agricultural waste and promote the bioeconomy concept is to produce an alternative product of plastic, i.e., 'bioplastic'. This paper used different keywords to perform the bibliometric analysis of the scientific publication related to bioplastic, agricultural waste, and sustainability. Remarkably, results show the increasing research interest in bioplastic with the key developing trends in sustainable bioplastic production, agriculture waste management, biopolymer, and biological processes. The identified developing trends can be used for further research to create a sustainable agricultural sector and produce higher added-value products. Moreover, this study discovered that the agro-biopolymer area needs more focus on sustainable development considering the economic, social, and environmental dimensions.
