Ron Baily of Reason writes on new innovations in plastic.
- Despite efforts from consumers, only about 9 percent of plastic that is used ends up being recycled.
- Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab have come up with a solution to this plastic problem with an infinitely recyclable plastic called polydiketoenamine (PDK).
- Products made with PDK can be dipped into an acid that separates the plastic from any additives, such as dyes, making recycling more cost-effective.
- With innovations such as this, the world can hopefully begin to lower its plastic pollution footprint.
