Bio Plastic

Cellulose-containing algae can potentially be used as a renewable feedstock for paper production as the strong green colour of algae is more difficult to bleach than wood fibres used a mix of algae taken from a municipal waste water treatment as 10% of the pulp mix, resulting in a significant increase in the mechanical paper strength and a decrease in paper brightness were reported, as well as a 45% lower material cost, which resulted in a 0.9-4.5% reduction in the final paper price.

There is some promising research on the utilization of aquatic biomass for paper pulp, a development that deserves future attention, from economical, renewable and quality points of view.
