This Newly Discovered Strain Of Bacteria Can Eat Plastic
A new study found that a certain type of bacteria can break down low-quality plastic in about six weeks.By Melissa Prax | March 11, 2016
There may be a new way to accelerate plastic decomposition, and it involves bacteria.
A new study from Japanese scientists says a new strain of bacteria found outside a recycling facility eats plastic.
It can take hundreds of years for plastic to naturally break down. And considering researchers believe there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by the year 2050, that's a problem.
