Life of modern civilization is accompanied by accumulation of huge amounts of non-degradable solid waste materials. A major portion of this resistant waste is represented by synthetic polymers of petrochemical origin. The accumulation of plastic wastes has become a very important environmental issue1. Conventional synthetic polymers are problematic not only because of their long decomposition time, but they also release various toxic substances during the process of degradation. Hence, there is… CONTINUE READING
