Everyone talks much about how oil will be
replaced by renewable sources such as solar,
wind, etc, but they all forget oil also produces
MATERIALS such as plastic, paints, etc. And
those same sources can do nothing about it! The
EUnergyCane variety will be the main source of
sugars and other molecules which will be the
basis of many plastic and chemicals. For
example, the most produced plastic in the world
today is polyethylene, and it comes from the
most produced chemical product: ethylene. Which
is surprisingly easy to produce from ethanol.
Which wil come from this the sugars and
cellulose of the EUnergyCane variety.
In fact, the technology has been around since
1920, and is now becoming price compatible with
oil-based plastics, as you can see in this
MIT Review (click here). And it is already a
reality, as Pantene, the brand of haircare
products run by Proctor and Gamble, is already
shipping its first plant-based plastic
containers to stores in Western Europe since
2011, as the picture shows.
