Plastic eating fungi that could solve our garbage problem
According to reports, the mushroom's plastic-devouring properties were first discovered in 2011, when a team of Yale undergraduates and their professor traveled to Ecuador for a research trip. They found the mushroom, microspora, in the amazon and were astounded to find that the fungus not only subsists on polyurethane (it's the first plant to sustain itself only on plastic), but could do so without oxygen. That means it could be planted at the bottom of landfills and happily eat its fill of plastic for eons to come! https://www.newsweek.com/2014/12/26/plastic-eating-fungi-could-solve-our-garbage-problem-291694.html

Carbon Sequestering Seed Inoculation
SoilCQuest have an amazing seed technology which can sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide. This has the added benefit of improving soil health by increasing soil carbon levels which in turn promotes plant growth. This unique technology was discovered by examining the traits of plants that thrived in harsh environments. Find out more here https://www.soilcquest.org.au/

Pristine fruit and vegetables with no plastic
A group of supermarkets in New Zealand has eliminated the use of plastic packaging and wrapping for all fruit and vegetables. This new campaign is known as "Food in the nude" and the idea is to end all plastic packaging. https://albertonrecord.co.za/198508/food-nude-nz-ditching-plastic-packaging-fruit-vegetables-supermarkets/

Leaf Oil from any plant used as a renewable resource
Consumers are increasingly demanding our fuels and industrial materials are produced from more sustainable and renewable resources. Plant oils are the most technically suitable, low-cost alternative, but current production systems struggle to keep pace with the projected 50% increase in demand needed just for food use. Folear enables the production of oil in leaves of potentially any plant, rather than just the seeds and fruits of our currently limited array of oil crops. This renewable oil production is needed to meet both this food security challenge and the renewable fuel opportunity. Folear (previously called LeafOil) has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate3/LeafOil
