5 things you didn’t know about...bio-based polymers
Credit: tinglee1631 /
1. Bio-based polymers are generally referred to as bioplastics,
which are defined as a plastic that is either bio-based, biodegradable, or
both. So bioplastics are not only derived from biomass but can include
fossil-based polymers, too, if they are biodegradable.
2. Most biodegradable plastics will only decompose in an
industrial composting facility.
3. Coca-Cola introduced the first version of its
PlantBottle, made from 30% bio-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET), in 2009.
Standard PET, used widely in drinks bottles, pots, tubs and oven-ready trays is
a combination of 32.2% monoethylene glycol (MEG) and 67.8% purified
terephthalic acid (PTA).
4. Companies and research institutions are developing
bio-based polymers with a variety of natural feedstocks. Lactips, a French
start-up, is expecting its milk protein-based polymers to enter the laundry,
water treatment and agrochemicals market in the third quarter of 2017.
5. Banana peel provides the base for polymers developed at
the University of Sonora, Mexico. Strips of banana endocarp are immersed in two
antioxidants and then dried, lyophilised and mixed with either citric acid or
propolis, a resinous mixture produced by honey bees to create a mouldable
paste. When mixed with propolis, the biopolymer is food-safe and prevents the
proliferation of bacteria and fungi. The University of Strathclyde, UK, has
even developed a polymer using a waste product of the seafood industry.

BOOK ONE: DECAY. CHAPTER 2. PAGE 1. ♦4 SEPTEMBER - 8 SEPTEMBER 1944
One. Classes begin on the Monday after the Opening Ceremony, and it almost seems like an insult, to return to a semblance of normalcy so soon after such calamity had rocked the greatest wizarding school of Western Europe. In the wake of the news breaking, letters flood into Hogwarts one owl after another, and then some. Atlas Malfoy’s black hawk waits slyly for its masters’ response, Pollux Black’s red-sealed envelope scalds Dippet’s hand as it is opened. Carrow, Mulciber, Lestrange – parchments upon parchments of outrage, accusation, intimidation. As for Dolohov, a mean-eyed osprey latches its knife-sharp beak to Dumbledore’s pointer finger upon landing, refusing to relinquish until he’s read the foreboding Russian threat in full. These sacred families have not sent their beloved heirs and heiresses into these famed halls in order for them to perish by muggle hand. It’s a disgrace. They’ll have the headmaster’s head on a platter. I will see you at Wizengamot, Armando. Some (Malfoy, Dolohov, Black, Carrow) even threaten withdrawal.
Two. Nonetheless, order must be established if they are to put the events of 1 September behind them. Trunks are unpacked, dormitories decorated with football banners, quidditch flags, and various items of personal taste. Uniforms with golden insignias are hung up by the scions while others shine their worn Mary Janes and scuffed Oxfords. Books, no matter their condition, are carefully sorted through. Schedules, lamented and then committed to memory as best as possible. In Declan and Leo’s shared room, the board of conspiracies grows. In Tom’s cell, he paces restlessly. Throughout the castle, uneasy minds try to focus instead on the excitement and anxiety of a new year of school.
And when the sun rises, hundreds of wizarding children tighten their ties and smooth their skirts: and when they appear in the Great Hall with their meal tickets for breakfast, it’s almost as if they are safe. Almost.
CLASSES FOR THE 1944-45 SCHOOLYEAR HAVE BEGUN!
Previous threads may continue, but starters from this point forward will be for Page 1 of Chapter 2. The timeframe for interactions on the dash will be from Monday 3/27 to Sunday 4/9.
Roleplaying can touch upon classes, interactions in the hall, library, grounds, etc. – essentially, normal roleplaying for the first week of school. The caveat is this: for this page, RANDOM PAIRINGS have been made for class threads. If you’ve liked the previous post, then your character has been assigned a thread with another character. (For the sake of roleplaying, it’s assumed that all characters are having similar lessons.) Please make sure to make good progress on and/or finish the thread if possible! If you’re not on this list and would like to be in a pairing, please let me know. Remember to tag your threads with the date (anytime during the first week) & location, and have fun!
