The long awaited solution to the global problem of recycling carrier bags has finally been found. A new polymer, Methyl-di-butanoazate, added to the pre mix granules for the production of polythene will allow all polythene carrier bags to be reused forever regardless of how damaged the bags may be.
Scientists in Malaysian factory, Giodong-phuktwat Plastics Co Inc Ltd Pty, have found the new material can be washed on a full cycle up to 90 degrees, tumble dryed and even ironed flat as new without causing any further damage to the material.
Should the bag be damaged or split, eco aware users can leave the bag in their oven for 6 hours on 240 degrees to self heal. The Malaysian firm said they will be holding the world to ransom and are prepared to sell the new technology only to the higest bidders from each country.
Greenpeace activists have raised concerns that the new material will never degrade. In reply, scientists have assured activists the bags could survive a nuclear blast and even hold back lava flows.
