Mexican researchers as inspiration for P4SB

Mexican researchers obtained a particularly high biodedegradation on a polyether polyurethane foam with 65% of dry weight losses. To get this result, they incubated the foam with a fungal strain of C. tenuissimum for 21 days.

What an inspiration for P4SB!
