While the West is thinking about how to save our planet due to years of resource depletion and pollution, scientists from all over the world are looking for solutions to these problems.
In Russia, for example, scientists from Krasnoyarsk have learned how to make bioplastics from beets.
The main ingredient in the “recipe” for the production of environmentally friendly plastic is the synthesis of a strain of soil bacteria Cupriavidus necator.
Beetroot plastic can be used in medicine, drug production and other fields.
“Our research is aimed at more efficient use of sugar production waste, such as cane and sugar beet molasses. This is an inexpensive source of carbon, containing, in addition to sugars, vitamins and a number of mineral elements, ”said a senior researcher at the Institute of Biophysics.
Scientific discoveries in this direction give hope that our planet can still be saved, if you think carefully.
