A new process produces a biodegradable plastic-like product from wood waste powder.
The trick is to get it to last long enough for the intended purpose and then let it degrade naturally, rather than end up like plastic in the oceans for hundreds of years. I recently got a restaurant take out meal in what appeared to be a wood-fibre-based container that worked very well.
