Title: Sustainable Plastics: Designing and Demonstrating Renewable, Biodegradable Products Made of Soy Protein-based Plastics

University of Wisconsin-Madison students will design and produce plastic from soy protein. This plastic is made from renewable materials and is biodegradable, offering a sustainable alternative to fossil fuel-based plastics. It can be produced on conventional plastic processing equipment, but the technology must be improved to make it economically feasible for commercial production.
