    Boost For 'Green Plastics' From Plants

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0429085916.htm

    ScienceDaily (Apr. 30, 2008) — Australian researchers are a step closer to turning plants into ‘biofactories’ capable of producing oils which can be used to replace petrochemicals used to manufacture a range of products.
    The production of biofactory plants can be matched to demand and will provide farmers with new, high-value crops bred to suit their growing conditions. The technology is low greenhouse gas generating, sustainable and can reinvigorate agribusiness.
    Research that definate has potential benefits. But there is still has to be concern of the expanding use of bioeconomy substitutions for industry thru farming and how much they would affect the price of food...which there is no substitute.

    Great, hopefully the can grow these plants hydroponically instead of depleting forest cover.

    נישא ברוח הערביים עם קול פעמונים
    ובתרדמת אילן ואבן שבוייה בחלומה
    העיר אשר בדד יושבת ובליבה חומה

    ירושלים של זהב ושל נחושת ושל אור
    הלא לכל שירייך אני כינור
