Amazing benefits of Lignin!

The waterproofing materials used on cardboard boxes and other shipping containers is some sort of petroleum-derived wax. This  compounds don’t break down naturally and said to be non-sustainable. Hence researchers at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) have developed a new waterproofing compound from entirely natural sources that is derived from plants.

Lignin is a gigantic #molecule found in most plant species and some algaes. It fills in the space between cellulose and other polysaccharides in plant cell walls.

The lignin-based waterproofing formulation is said to be bio-degradable one and henceforth it is said to be the alternate for petroleum based waterproofing materials.
