Researchers develop bioplastics made from cyanobacteria

A team of researchers from the Michigan State University is using cyanobacteria to develop bioplastics that "are derived from biological sources" and "hold the promise of being more biocompatible and potentially degrading in natural environments," said Danny Ducat, an assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the university. The researchers hope their developed bioplastics could become alternatives to single-use plastic products, disposable silverware and takeout lunch plastic clamshell containers.
