Around 25,000 tonnes of banana plants are dumped in the ravines of Spain's Canary Islands following the fruit's harvesting each year. But now EU-funded researchers are working on a new technique that should make it possible to use these plants to produce plastic goods. The ground-breaking results will help Europeans in their quest to develop new and sustainable means of materials production.
The research ...
