Water-soluble plastic

In Japan, they invented a plastic that dissolves in sea water. In appearance, it does not differ from other polyethylene products. Sugar cane is used as the main raw material for the production of such plastic.
As reported in the company “Mitsubishi Chemical” for complete dissolution in water of these plastic products will take about one year.
Manufacturers of such plastic hope that their product will help to avoid unpleasant “memory” from vacationers on the banks of reservoirs. Currently, we have started mass production of such products.
According to the United Nations, 300 million plastic wastes accumulate on The globe every year. Specially conducted research has identified 8 million such wastes in the world’s oceans. Marine animals, swallowing them, get into tragic situations.
