A New Possibility For Wood? Easy…Plastics.

Actually it’s quite the opposite. Apparently some German Inventors have created a unique product known as “liquid wood” that can be used to replace many of our plastics. It’s considered ideal because it’s biodegradable, made from renewable resources, and is strong enough to replace items such as helmets and safety wear.  The question I pose is this:  If we have the technology to create this product, it’s effective and can be used immediately, and plastics are forecasted to run out in the next 30 years (allegedly), then why hasn’t it overwhelmingly replaced the plastic market yet?
