US Army Wants Biodegradable Bullets That Sprout Plants | weebsly

the united states military is planning to apply biodegradable bullets loaded with special seeds that sprout into flora which can do away with ammunition particles and contaminants, reducing soil pollution in schooling grounds.

Spent shells muddle US army training centers around the world as there may be no efficient way to clean them up.

The shells, which incorporate steel and other chemical compounds, can rust and pollute soils and groundwater.

the us branch of defense (DoD) are soliciting proposals for biodegradable bullets loaded with seeds to grow environmentally useful flora that get rid of ammunition particles and contaminants.
