University of Minnesota researchers were recognized Tuesday for efforts to make plastic bags more environmentally-friendly.
The team, aiming to make bags out of biodegradable material, was honored at the university's Inventor Recognition event Tuesday evening.
"We're always asked about how are we benefitting society and how are we translating those findings into real societal benefit," said Marc Hillmyer, a university chemistry professor. "And I think it's important to recognize those who actually are effective at doing that and to teach people and tell people our stories."
