Two Big Developments
by Handsome Matt
To begin with, plastic might not be the environmental issue without a solution anymore.
A teenager in Canada discovered a strand of bacteria that eats plastic bags. This is funny because it was for a science fair.
And a group of scientists have figured out how to heat various types of plastic in such a way as to break them down into oil. And it only costs a few pennies per liter of oil.
The second big development:
Another group of scientists discovered that by using wastewater from sewage treatment plants (that is: pee) hydrogen can be produced cheaply as well.
