Eco Bandage From Fruit Wastage
Eco Bandage: Antibacterial bandage from fruit waste prepared by scientists in Singapore. Scientists claim that it prevents the fruit from being wasted and helps the wound to heal quickly.

This means that after eating the pulp part of the durian, the peel and seeds are discarded. It has a direct impact on the environment. By preparing a new bandage, the environment can also be protected. Similarly humans also get a new option to heal wounds.
Researchers at Nanyang Technological University isolated the durian skin from the fruit. By grinding it, cellulose powder is made. It was then converted into antibacterial strips by adding glycerol to the powder. It was then cut into thin strips and made into strips.
This strap is more comfortable than regular bandages.
Researchers say the bandage looks like a soft hydrogel. It is more comfortable than other wound healing bandages. In addition, it keeps the wound cool and moist, allowing the wound to heal quickly.
Cheaper than other straps.

Tan Ingchuan, who sells durian fruit in Singapore, said it sells about 1,800 kilograms of fruit during its season. An average of 30 boxes are sold every day.
