The Bank of England has announced that it will be changing its polymer notes and is working on potential solutions after upsetting Vegans, vegetarians, and other animal advocates over their animal-fat-infused £5 bank note.
Scientists have created polymer sheets that could be programmed to transform in shape at a given time. The discovery could lead to new medical implants that could take shape inside the body.
Unlike antibiotics, the polymer could kill the superbug in multiple paths.
Using a combination of orange peels and industrial waste products, researchers from Flinders University have developed a material that could help clean the world's oceans by sucking up contaminates like mercury.
Researchers claim to have developed an inexpensive and eco-friendly bio-plastic that degrades at a more acceptable rate, compared to traditional plastics. The plastic, they say, is made from vegetable waste and the byproducts of rice and cocoa production, meaning that it will place no new demand on the Earth as well.
