• Assess and reduce toxic chemicals in bioplastics | Science

    4 days ago - By Science Mag

    To promote a circular economy and mitigate pollution, the bioplastics industry has begun to phase out polymers derived from petrochemicals (1-3). This action is a positive step, but it doesn't affect the many bioplastics on the market, which also contain potentially harmful additives. Given that bioplastics will likely replace polymers, it is crucial to determine which bioplastics cause the least harm.
