Scientists Transform Plastic Waste Into a Valuable Soil Additive

A recent study has detailed a method of converting plastic waste into a highly porous form of charcoal that has a large surface area of about 400 square meters per gram of mass. This charcoal has the potential to capture carbon and improve soil water retention and aeration of farmlands, while also fertilizing the soil as it naturally breaks down. This method could be an effective way to address plastic waste problem and enhance agriculture.
