A flash heating technique breaks down plastic waste and converts it to pure hydrogen and graphene with significantly less emissions and at a low cost.
Using mouse embryos, scientists explore the impact of high exposure to a common plasticizer on male fertility, but caution: the dose makes the poison.
A new study looked at the extent to which plastics can be recycled using mechanical methods, finding good and bad news.
From soil to the seed, nanoplastics were shown to accumulate in rice and peanuts with potential affects on crop yield and nutrition.
New research with samples from Pic du Midi Observatory reveal that microplastics are traversing the globe through the atmosphere.
Specially designed microrobots could help clean plastic waste from water systems.
Moisture-resistant mask filters made from compostable and abundant materials could help curb plastic pollution as a result of the pandemic.
While plastic waste is an issue, its prominence in the general public’s concern for the environment is overshadowing greater threats.
Researchers develop an efficient, low-energy method for upcycling polyethylene plastic waste into valuable molecules that can be repurposed for further use.
Unless growth in plastic production and use is halted, a fundamental transformation of the plastic economy to a framework based on recycling is essential.
