Plastic is great until you no longer need it. Because plastics contain various additives, like dyes, fillers, or flame retardants, very few plastics can be recycled without loss in performance or aesthetics.

Even the most recyclable plastic, PET – or poly(ethylene terephthalate) – is only recycled at a rate of 20 to 30%, with the rest typically going to incinerators or landfills, where the carbon-rich material takes centuries to decompose.

Now a team of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has designed a recyclable plastic that, like a Lego playset, can be disassembled into its constituent parts at the molecular level, and then reassembled into a different shape, texture, and color again and again without loss of performance or quality.

The new material, called poly(diketoenamine), or PDK, was reported in the journal Nature Chemistry.

Good news. I’m a big believer in recycling....a tad obsessive if I’m honest. Embarassed

Those aren't apples, those are the twisted, poisonous fruit of a diseased mind and a bitter heart that got together and buttfucked one another.

You get zero points for your "effort" and should consider retiring from the right-wing commentary field, as I'm sure you've done great harm to your cause.

I love those apples! Just because something doesn’t belong to you doesn’t mean you can’t look after it, right? Like people. You don’t own them, but you look after them, right?

It was a rather weak point but I loved your apples nonetheless.

pffft...smelly has a point....

if the "greens" ever got a sniff of power I'd get rid asap of my woodland, despite the sadness that would cause, simply becasue IF they put in place their "open acess" ideas I would have every tom dick and harry allowed to tramp through , dump rubbish, shit, bring their dogs to shit, pull up my saplings and trample my coppice and STILL be expected , at MY expense to maintain it.....

fcuk off...thats MY bit of wood and visitors are on an approval only basis, I DONT want townies anywhere near it.....

Whataboutism

This could help reduce the amount opf plastic polution

I imagine the people who created this, clearly are not wrappped up continually with politics, but the future of all life on this planet

This is a good idea, one practical, where i am sure, the very same people would look to preserve the untouched nature of your woods

Now, just 'fess up, SmellyWastrel...

You have never been a recycler..

Nor have you ever given two hoots about saving the planet.

You're only out to have a good time -- if only for a short time -- what with all your trolling and triggering and troublemaking..

It was a rather weak point but I loved your apples nonetheless.

You're a goddamn fucking hippy

No I don't look after people, I fucking hate people, I'm fully embracing technology since it allows me to not have to deal with humans.

I don't even remember the last time I actually looked at someone

Not only that, why is he here, if he wants no contact with other humans

Just about the worst contradiction going by smelly, as he is having to deal with humans here
