Mallika Kapur reports on the world’s first 100% biodegradable plastic which completely disappears into the environment.
The process involves adding an enzyme when the plastic bag is produced. After the bag is discarded and comes into contact with soil, the combination of the two act as a catalyst to break down the molecules in polythene.
Within 6 months the bag completely disappears into the environment leaving no toxic residue behind.
