Bioplastics Venture Uses Fisheries Waste Stream
During the developmental process, the bioplastic manufacturer says it will work with Dr. Jason Bolton, a food safety specialist at the University of Maine, and conduct safety tests on products molded from Sierra Resins Enviroable bioplastics portfolio.
In other waste-to-plastic ventures, earlier this month, startup Newlight Technologies said it is using methane from dairy farms to make plastic. The company says the plastic, called AirCarbon, will be used to make chairs, food containers, automotive parts and even cellphone cases for Virgin Mobile.
Last month a team from Imperial College London announced it had developed a process for turning landfill waste into bioplastic. The team says the healthcare industry could use the bioplastic to make syringes and other disposable devices used in hospitals.
