+ - Plastic Made from Fruit Rivals Kevlar in Strength-> 2

Submitted by jldailey618
jldailey618 (2015072) writes "A group of scientists from Sao Paulo State University developed a way to use the nanocellulose fibers from bananas, pineapples, and other fruits to create incredibly strong, lightweight plastics. The plastic is up to four times stronger and 30 percent lighter than petroleum-based plastics, and it rivals Kevlar — the material used in bullet proof vests — in strength."
