US based Newlight Technologies has come up with a plastic that is actually environment friendly. Named AirCarbon, It is a material made by separating carbon from air, carbon that would otherwise be in the air we are breathing right now.
Pollution-Free electric cars, Carbon-Negative plastic – Humanity is going in the right direction
Almost all plastics today are made exclusively from oil or other fossil fuels. By replacing oil with AirCarbon, the company is aimed to reverse the flow of carbon and actually improve the world–reducing the concentration of carbon in the air.
According to the company AirCarbon is able to meet the performance requirements of a wide range of applications, including applications currently using fossil fuel-based polypropylene, polyethylene, ABS, polystyrene, and TPU.
AirCarbon is a naturally biodegradable polyester that can be recycled in multiple use cycles, and can be formulated into both biodegradable and non-biodegradable grades according to the durability and carbon capture needs of a given application.
Its a carbon-negative material, quantifiably reducing the amount of carbon in the air, transforming the products we use every day into products that reverse the flow of carbon and change the world.
