Algae instead of Oil

by Green Plastics


According to an article posted on ecochamber.com,

California-based company Cereplast has revealed that it is developing breakthrough technology to transform algae into bioplastics, and predicts that it could replace 50% or more of the petroleum content used in traditional plastic resins.

According to Frederic Scheer, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Cereplast, “Based on our own efforts, as well as recent commitments by major players in the algae field, we believe that algae has the potential to become one of the most important green feedstocks for biofuels, as well as bioplastics.”
