Money doesn’t grow on trees but Plastic….

Massachusetts-based Metabolix Inc. has created a variety of switchgrass that produces plastic in their leaf tissues.
Metabolix recently completed greenhouse trials showing that not only they can produce plastic out of plants,
but they can also use the biomass remains to produce biofuels.
