Are Plastic Water Bottles Endangering The Human Race?
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
City:Markham, ON
School:Richmond Hill Montessori and Elementary Private School
Abstract:Bisphenol-A (BPA) has now been well documented to be leaching from plastic water bottles especially when these bottles are subjected to heat such as in the summer. Experiments (n=5) were conducted to test the heat transfer to the water comparing commercial plastic water bottles to Tetra Pak containers. As part of the EnviroExpo project, a new water bottle using Tetra-Pak material has been designed.
