Scientists have developed and analyzed a novel catalyst for the oxidation of 5-hydroxymethyl furfural, which is crucial for generating new raw materials that replace the classic non-renewable ones used for making many plastics.
The plane carries no single-use plastics – but aren't we ignoring a much bigger environmental issue?
Do these six pain-free things, and you’ll help reduce the impact plastic is having on oceans and other waterways around the world.

A first-of-its-kind retrospective study finds that environmental cleanup projects are economically viable. The economic evaluation analysis estimates that Boston Harbor -- once dubbed America's filthiest harbor -- is now worth between $30 and $100 billion in ecosystem services. The study demonstrates that the post-cleanup value of healthy ecosystems and their associated benefits to society should be considered when evaluating options for coastal areas.
Corona recently announced that it will be testing an eco-friendly change in its packaging, making it the first major brand to test 100 percent plastic-free six-pack rings.

Researchers have discovered that living plants are literally 'green' power source: they can generate, by a single leaf, more than 150 Volts, enough to simultaneously power 100 LED light bulbs. Researchers also showed that an 'hybrid tree' made of natural and artificial leaves can act as an innovative 'green' electrical generator converting wind into electricity.
