Enzyme Combo Results in Bioplastics Composite
Snapshot: Developing bioplastics as a means of moving away from non-renewable, petroleum-based products has many economic and environmental benefits. Researchers at the Forest Products Laboratory recently developed a new way to produce furylglycolic acid (FA), a suitable component of bioplastics, from glucose that can be derived from wood and other forms of biomass.
FPL researchers developed a new method for producing a suitable component of bioplastics from glucose, which can be derived from wood and other forms of biomass. Thinkstock
