IBM develops plant based plastic which is infinitely recyclable
For those who don’t know, currently used plastics are developed from petroleum products and are very difficult to recycle. However, IBM’s researchers co operated by some Stanford University scientists recently made a groundbreaking discovery. This discovery could help to make plastics that are plant based rather than petroleum based, thus making them more environment friendly. And that’s not all. This discovery could help to make plastics that are recyclable more than once. This would apply to all kinds of plastics ranging from the type used in car parts to the type used to make soda bottles.
Although more research is to be done in this area, this eco friendly method of making plastic has the potential to rid the world of its plastic problems.
