They're out in real-world applications, led often by major Japanese manufacturers of autos, electronics, and appliances.

It is an interesting article considering that bioplastics could be a tremendous advantage to biocompatible materials such as PLA if they were derived from natural sources rather than from petroleum.

On another note, why isn't there a section in CR4 for Biomedical Engineering for discussion of these ideas?
