Plastics for bags and bodies

Plastics for bags and bodies

Media issued by The University of Sydney           

Biomolecular engineers at the University of Sydney are creating cleaner, more cost-effective PPC polymers that promise to transform the biodegradable polymer industry.

The plastics being developed will have a broad range of usability, at one end of the spectrum being used for fully recyclable shopping bags, at the other, as restorative implants in the human body.

The project has been funded by both the Australian Research Council and bioplastics subsidiary CO2Starch.
