The factors that can be utilized in the development of new protein based plastic materials from industrial oilseeds are examined. As this area has not been explored in depth in the literature, experiences from the study of other proteins are used to better understand the possibilities of industrial oilseed protein based material. The review begins with a short introduction of the issued surrounding protein based plastics then follows the conventional production process for oilseeds and the possible alternative processes with a view to maintaining protein quality. A selection of industrial oilseeds is considered for use as protein sources. The factors that go into successful utilization of the oilseed proteins are examined from an industrial perspective, e.g. plasticization and forming useful articles, as well as the inter-protein interactions that shape product properties. After the molecular scale mechanisms are considered, previous work in developing protein based plastics is reviewed. Finally, possible applications are examined.
