Yang & colleagues find way to improve bio-plastic properties
Yiqi Yang

Yiqi Yang and colleagues have found that increasing the temperature of bio-plastic fibers to several hundred degrees Fahrenheit, then allowing them to slowly cool, greatly improved bio-plastic’s resistance to heat and moisture. This method can also make commercial manufacturing of bio-plastic’s possible. (8/31/17)
