Scientists Create A Super Enzyme That Could Alleviate The Plastic Pollution Explosion

Scientists accidentally created a super enzyme that eats plastic.  It was in the process of engineering bacteria that the surprising, plastic-engulfing results were revealed. However, the enzyme doesn’t necessarily “eat” the plastic, but breaks it down into its original components allowing it to become plastic again.  Additionally, the research actually piggybacked off a previous model of the bacteria that was discovered by Japanese researchers in 2016.  Read more...
