University of South Carolina Researcher Develops Renewable Plastics from Pine Sap with NSF’s Support
When you think of evergreen trees, images of holidays, snow, decorations and singing songs might come to mind. You can smell the pine needles, can’t you? Now there’s another use for evergreen trees and it could impact your product portfolio in the not so distant future. Researchers at the University of South Carolina are using evergreen trees to make renewable plastics. If these researchers can optimize the performance of these renewable plastics and commercialize them on a massive scale, then you might have another option to help with your organization’s sustainability platform.
