Dr Anjum Nawab, a Pakistani scientist serving as Assistant Professor at #Karachi
University, on Monday claimed to have generated bio-plastic with mango
kernel, which is easily dissoluble and has no threat to the environment,
aquatic life and plants.
Talking to a private news channel, she said, “Pakistan is known for its ample production of mangoes so I choose mangoes’ waste to form a bio-plastic bag in my PhD studies.”
With further advancement, the plastic could be used to make shopping bags, she stated, adding that the bio-plastic could be melted in the ground, just like the waste of fruits, and could be liquefied under hot water
