When exposed to sunshine and air, researchers discovered a technique to make plastic degrade in just a week. Researchers from China's Huazhong University of Science and Technology created the new plastic substance. Researchers are experimenting with ways to make this material, as well as other types of degradable polymers, useful. However, they claim that commercial availability will be years away.
