We may have just figured out a way to make plastic part of an energy future.
Dionisios G. Vlachos has plastic on the mind.
The stuff fills up landfills, but finding a second life for it seems like a fool’s errand.
Vlachos compares it to building a house: “It’s difficult to build a house and it’s easy to smash it apart,” he tells Inverse.
“This is the reverse. Plastic is very easy to make and difficult to break apart.”
