How are we disposing of BPA plastics?

    2.7 million tons of PBA plastic is produced per year.  In a study conducted with the goal of developing eco-friendly methods of disposing of the plastic, it was found that polycarbonate that was pretreated with ultraviolet light is quicker to decompose when exposed to different types of fungi.

    Ideally, BPA is properly disposed of according to the procedure listed above.  Unfortunately, the United States do not have strict laws regulation the production and/or the disposal of BPA products and many of these plastics are thrown away in our landfills.  USA Today reports that the first BPA regulation in the US will take effect this year: the state of Minnesota is banning BPA in food and drink products made for children.
