Specialists from the Japanese company Mitsubishi Chemical have developed new plastic bags. Now they can decompose in the sea, which will have a favorable impact on the environment.
The new packages look and feel the same as the usual ones. However, they are made from a material based on cane sugar and other soluble substances. This means that the product can decompose in seawater in about one year. The official representative of the Mitsubishi Chemical press service said that such an initiative is aimed at improving the state of the environment, in particular, to reduce the amount of plastic garbage in the seas and oceans. At the moment, the Corporation's developers are already preparing to launch mass production of their invention.
Recall that in the United States announced a competition to find an alternative to plastic bags.
