Climate change has different reasons, but is majorly caused by the way we produce and consume things: For example, manufacturing of materials and products take up more than 50% of the world’s global energy supply, and is responsible for 20% of…

Cyanobacteria Could Revolutionize the Plastic Industry (SciTechDaily)

Microbiologists at the University of Tübingen modify bacteria to produce climate-neutral and rapidly degradable bioplastics. Cyanobacteria produce plastic naturally as a by-product of photosynthesis — and they do it in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. Researchers at the University of Tübingen have now succeeded for the first time in modifying the bacteria’s metabolism to…
