The plastics does not need pre-set conditions and will degrade by itself after a given period of time. The plastic packaging will come with an expiry date so to say.
Thereafter, the catalyst in the polymer will start degrading into a non-toxic brittle material which will become food for surrounding microorganisms.
- Brilliant invention!
- Will the Indians disrupt the plastics industry?
- Will India use this invention to make a commercial breakthrough in the bioplastics industry?
