Researchers at the University of Göttingen created an eco-friendly and reusable plastic using a method known as hydro setting, which utilizes water to reconfigure plastic as required, removing the need for expensive and difficult production procedures. The hydrosetting process allows the plastic to be molded using water at normal temperature and pressure. This might be an excellent substitute for traditional plastic.
