Genetically modified bacteria may eat up ocean plastic waste

Posted by in categories: food, genetics, sustainability

This genetically engineered microorganism has the ability to break down a type of plastic known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Various bacterial species have demonstrated an extraordinary ability to degrade plastics, which are synthetic polymers known for their long-lasting and non-biodegradable characteristics.

Research in this area continues to advance to create viable and sustainable solutions to combat the growing menace of plastic waste in terrestrial and marine environments.
