Cow poo grocery bags in pipeline

Abstract:
On the face of it, a cow poo carry bag or a food scrap grocery sack might not be the most appealing way for Australians to cart home their shopping. But clean, green biodegradable plastic bags made from animal excrement or food waste could replace traditional plastic at Australian supermarket checkouts if a Sydney-based company has its way. "What this conference is doing is identifying where the next step is coming from by taking the best of microtechnology and nanotechnology and bringing that into the future management of agriculture."
