The trillions of pieces of plastic floating on the surface of our oceans weigh the equivalent of 27 Eiffel Towers and will take hundreds of years to degrade. A team of scientists has created a polymer capable of decomposing in a week when exposed to sun and air.
Beyond parks and green spaces, biophilic design integrates architecture and nature into buildings from a dual perspective, improving the health of citizens, as well as opening the way to more sustainable cities. But what is the scientific basis for this trend?
Plastics are one of the most difficult pollutants to remove. Therefore, looking for new ways to extend its useful life is essential. From cement substitutes to asphalt layers, new materials made from residues of these polymers are already beginning to be used in the construction sector.
