Andrea Macko in The Greenville Mountain View Pioneer (no website) reports that three students in Greenville High School's paid internship program with Ulster County's C2 Biotechnologies discovered a polymer, "with the potential to produce biodegradable plastic." Local officials, such as State Assemblyman Pete Lopez (R/C/I-Schoharie), and Congressman Chris Gibson (R-Kinderhook), were at the high school Wed., Jan. 11 to tout the program.
