Fantastic disappearing plastic

Bloomberg

Plastic will survive forever in landfill, or, if it is burnt, as it is in Japan, it can release toxic and carcinogenic particles into the atmosphere.

But a small Australian company called Plantic says it has a solution just add water and the problem will disappear.

The patented formula comprises 90 per cent cornstarch and other organic materials like water, fatty acid and oil...

Plantic conforms to European standard of biodegradability and when placed on the compost heap, it will disappear within three months releasing water into the soil and carbon dioxide into the Air.
