It decomposes quickly and consumes less energy to produce

We will no longer associate avocados only with guacamole recipes, but also with an intelligent solution for recycling bio-waste from it!

Last year, Americans consumed more than 6 billion avocados, leaving behind piles of seeds. But a company in Mexico has come up with a method to transform them into bioplastics. The innovative material degrades quickly and requires less fossil fuels to produce, Business Insider Today reports.

It is no coincidence that avocados are called the “green gold” of Mexico, as the country is one of the largest exporters of the precious fruit. It has been famous since Mayan times for its interesting taste and great health benefits due to its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, fiber, antioxidants and valuable trace elements. 

The new technology for the production of bioplastics is presented in a video that has been viewed over 2.7 million times in just three days and is liked by more than 70,000 Facebook users.
