Plastics in the market are produced from fossil sources, like natural gases and coal, which contribute largely to the increase of greenhouse gases and eventually worsening global warming. Thus, there is considerable interest in biodegradable plastics. Current biodegradable plastics pose harm to the environment too; therefore, the purpose of this project is to produce a biodegradable bioplastic from invasive algae and waste corn cobs

  1. It’s very impressive that you stuck with the project for three years to come up with the best solution

  2. This was an excellent project. I really liked the way you built on your past projects and learned from them. Your presentation and interview were well done. I hope you pursue this important as you move forward academically.
