One more step towards a world that is less oil depended than it is at this moment. sciencedaily.com is reporting that scientists leaded by David Grewell from Iowa State University have succeeded in reinforce plastics with nanoclay -- pieces of clay that are only 10 billionths to 20 billionths of a meter thick.
Plastic made from soy is biodegradable and during the manufacturing of the plastic you are not depending on oil, as is currently the case by most plastics made nowadays. So we are less depending on oil and it is more environmental friendly. Soy-plastic might well be the main replacement product for the current oil-plastic products.
The Soy Works Corporation is currently one of the biggest soy-plastic manufacturers on the market.
