The Hudson group is focused on developing new bio-based polymers for use in compostable plastics. Tens of billions of pieces of single-use plastics end up in rivers, oceans and landfills every year, most of which take thousands of years to naturally break down. Food and beverage packaging is the single largest source of single-use plastic waste, with only a small fraction of that ever being recycled. Hudson and his team are working to develop fully compostable materials from renewable feedstocks which meet the needs of consumers, while breaking down quickly into environmentally benign products.
