Plastic bags recycled into nanotubes

From the New Scientist website:Waste plastic from "throwaway" carrier bags can be readily converted into carbon nanotubes. The chemist who developed the technique has even used the nanotubes to make lithium-ion batteries.This is called "upcycling" – converting a waste product into something more valuable. Finding ways to upcycle waste could encourage more recycling: for instance, bacteria can
