32% of plastic packaging end up littering the world’s environment; 40% is sitting in a landfill somewhere; 14% is incinerated and another 14% is recycled (although only 2% is effectively recycled). This has resulted to a crisis situation in the world’s pollution problem. It’s time we fight back!
Nanotronics offers a solution that will produce an alternative material for plastics that can substantially reduce the pollution problem as well as slowdown global warming. By turning highly renewable indigenous plants into nanotechnology materials, packaging used in industrial, commercial as well as medical applications will no longer be pollutants that will destroy the environment.
