Revolutionary new bioplastics could help conserve oceans, land and fresh water

“A new study, published in the January 2019 issue of Bioresource Technology, describes a potentially revolutionary method to make bioplastic polymers that don’t require land or fresh water – resources that are increasingly scarce around the world. The polymer is derived from microorganisms that feed on seaweed. It is biodegradable, produces zero toxic waste and recycles into organic waste…”
