Story here.    I love stories like this where mad scientists wielding test tubes discover creative ways to cure the world's ills.  Too bad we rarely hear about the follow-up.   Here in the desert cigarette butts and other paper takes decades to disintegrate.

Pisses the hell out of me that people drop cigarette butts around. It would be handy if there were a use for them, but otherwise just put them in a tin, people! For crying out loud... it's not difficult. An old 'shoe-polish tin in your jeans' pocket is all it takes. (Feel free to suggest it the next smoker you see - and blame me.)

I wonder if the discovery will be put to use. I hope it is.

China is pretty good when it comes to Recycling.
