Medical Devices
Ioresorbable Vascular Scaffold
"The new heart-opening design, created by Abbott, is known by the tongue-twisting name "bioresorbable vascular scaffold" (or, more simply, BVS). It promises to improve on metal stents, which usually last so long that they start causing health problems of their own.

Corn-based plastics are more and more common in big, fast-moving items such as biodegradable food packaging and even toys and sky boots. But the new BVS design is tiny enough to fit in an artery--and proof of how far bio-plastics have come."

Artificial Snow
Earth Friendly Winter Snow
"This is our new "earth friendly" artificial snow. It will last for years when used for indoor snow displays, but it completely breaks down within one year of being exposed to weather and dirt, unlike plastic snow which lasts for hundreds of years in a landfill. It does not biodegrade nearly as quickly as the instanty biodegradable snow listed at the top of this page. Very economical and will work very well in any winter time or Christmas time display. Safe for indoor or outdoor use, and non-toxic. Made from a corn starch-based product that is not harmful to animals or humans."
