With a fund of NEDO, a consortium of companies, universities and national institutes will develop new plastics biodegradable in the oceans. The program includes analytical procedures, new materials including composites, and new bio-manufacturing processes. As a goal, a domestic market of 200,000 tons for new marine biodegradable plastics should be reached by 2030.
