Moscow Switches to Biodegradable Plastic

Plants, which supply Moscow Moscow with plastic packs, agreed to switch to oxy-biodegradable components.
      Special additives allow enormous increase in natural degradation of polymer materials, making it 3-5 years instead of over 100 years in case of ordinary plastic.
      Russian biologists tested new additive on earthworms, putting them into soil with pieces of plastic film. All worms survived.
      New technology preserves all necessary properties of plastic materials, but reduces its lifetime to 2 years for packs and 5 years for tableware. Developers promise that new plastic items will add only 15% to common price of plastic goods.
