Takeaways:

  • Students from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have made plastic from non-edible plant parts that break down into harmless sugars in the environment.
  • This “plastic” is strong, resists high temperatures, and blocks gases like oxygen that can damage food.
  • They’ve found that the material they’ve created eventually degrades back into its constituent sugars in room-temperature water.
