Scientists from Krasnoyarsk and Indian University Mahatma Gandhi developed a unique polymer products which are Hypo-allergenic and non-toxic. About it RIA Novosti said the press Secretary of the Siberian Federal University (SFU), Tatiana Mordvinova.
“Received a new kind of bio-decomposable polymer from the class of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA). It is able to maintain key performance characteristics (including plasticity) up to 180 days or more,” said the University.
According to Mordvinova, the material has high strength and durability, but in just six months, is destroyed in the environment, decomposing to carbon dioxide. It can be used in the manufacture of packaging containers and medical equipment.
When you create a new polymer were used, the bacteria Cupriavidus eutrophus B-10646, through which the material acquired properties, allowing it to be used in industry and medicine.
