A new polymer for making biodegradable plastic has been discovered in Bolivia. Biodegradable polymers are advantageous over petroleum based plastics because of its ability to decompose over a short period of time and reduce landfill use.
The challenge with manufacturing biodegradable plastics is the consumption of food sources and traditionally higher costs of production. Maybe this discovery will eliminate both challenges?
