Japanese scientists produced fertilizer from bioplastic. Their findings pave the way towards sustainable circular systems that simultaneously address issues such as plastic pollution, petrochemical resource depletion, and world hunger.
Desalination of seawater is important in water-scarce countries. For that process, certain charged particles – known as ions – have to be removed from the water.
Chinese researches discovered a way to create starch from co2 much more efficiently than plant do. That would potentially save up to 90% of farm land, water, fertiliser and pesticides, they claim.
