Louisiana sugarcane producers may one day have a stake in the U.S. plastics industry, with the help of LSU AgCenter researchers. LSU AgCenter personnel at the Audubon Sugar Institute are studying how to make plastic from a byproduct of sugar production. Aconitic acid, an organic acid found in significant levels in energycane, sugarcane and sweet sorghum juices, is a potential source of biodegradable plastics. Learn more about this research here.
