Caption: Plastic production research. Microbiologist using a laboratory fermenter to produce acrylic acid from glycerol found in vegetable oil. Acrylic acid, which is normally produced from the gas proylene, a by-product of oil refining, is used to produce plastics and adhesives. Producing acrylic acid from glycerol could provide a source of plastics even if oil supplies ran out. This research was performed for the United States Department of Agriculture.
