The invention of a biodegradable ‘plastic’ bag made out of coconuts, made by the teenage son of ARMM governor Mujiv Hataman, won third place among 462 entries in an international inventions contest held in Houston Texas.
Amin Hataman, a student of Fountain International School in Manila, competed against numerous young inventors in the International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering and Environmental Project Olympiad, an annual competition for high school students that focuses on inventions that help protect the environment.
Amin invented a plastic bag made of coconuts, that disintegrates after several days of exposure to the elements.
His invention also won a gold medal at the International Young Inventor’s Olympiad held in Georgia last year.
