The global packaging market is undergoing rapid transformation. The amount of package consumption is increasing, the market structure is shifting, and new packaging technologies are emerging. Biodegradable packaging is a solution to environmental challenges that is gaining increasing attention from the international community. The development of packaging that does not affect the environment in the process of disposal is presently a top priority. The process for making biodegradable packaging from natural biomass, namely agricultural waste and solid home waste, wollastonite, is presented in this article. α-cellulose, lignin, ash, and hemicellulose were examined for chemical composition in packaging paper made from agricultural waste, specifically wheat straw and rice straw, using established procedures. In addition, studies were conducted on the transmission of micro- and nanoparticles through the prepared paper, a study was conducted on an FTIR instrument to obtain cellulose spectra, and a thermogravimetric investigation to determine whether the samples were degradable, as well as a non-standard method for the biodegradable properties of paper
