December 16, 2004 A bio-degradable packaging tape made from renewable resources is being developed by German researchers that can be disposed of cheaply and will create less waste. Currently, used plastic wrappings and containers are incinerated or dumped in huge quantities on landfill sites with ongoing environmental results. The organic packaging tape will be available worldwide in 2005 and may be as cheap as current tape if oil prices continue to rise and manufacturing costs come down.
