A student of the Kazan National Research Technological University, Ivan Zakharov, created eco-friendly film, an analogue of the film used for the production of plastic bags. The new film dissolves in water in one day. The student said that ordinary plastic bags decompose for up to 1,000 years, polluting the soil.
Zakharov said that the film he invented was made on the basis of conventional starch. When dissolved in water, water, nitrogen and carbon dioxide are produced as a result of the process, in amounts harmless to humans.
"For example, one car produces as much carbon dioxide as 50 tons of such bags do," says the student.
Currently, the man is patenting his invention. Several waste-processing companies have already showed interest in the new invention.
Zakharov started the work to create the film four years ago under the direction of the head of the department for food engineering of small businesses, Professor Mstislav Polivanov.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
It has long been understood that the West has been trying to subject Russian borders to total control. We have not seen such activity even during the Cold War
