    The idea is to use a new technology to create plastic from sewage.
    The process will transform sewage into a biodegradable plastic by first removing the water and certain solids. A group of bacteria that address different parts of the sewage, such as sugars or fats, then will work together to produce a bioplastic polystyrene that will be similar to the top of a disposable coffee cup.
    The bioplastic resin will biodegrade within 6 to 12 months.
