How to Make Salt Water Decompose Plastic Bottles
If we don’t find a solution, the plastic-fish-ratio in the oceans will have risen from 1:5 to 1:1 in the next 30 years. The great garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean, today, covers four times the size of Germany. So, chemical engineer Max Volhard is working on a solution: He is inventing biodegradable plastic that will decompose after contact with salt water. In his talk, he explains how. Max-Fabian Volhard is a PhD candidate at the department of Chemical Engineering at Muenster Technical University.
