A team of researchers from China, Saudi Arabia, and the United States have developed a new plastic that keep it's qualities after being recycled. This new plastic is made from a bio-based acid, and has all the properties that normal plastic has.
The team tested it's ability to be recycled, and they discovered that, when broken down, it's molecule stayed the same, again and again. From the broken down plastic, they created new batches of the same plastic.
This new plastic could take the place of regular plastic in many products, and reduce the pollution caused by plastic. But, to be recycled, it has to be separated from other materials first.
