California Scientists Explore New Ways to Decompose Microplastics

Scientists at the University of Southern California in the USA today presented the results of their new research on how modern versions of biodegradable plastic can be made even safer and even faster in the context of the degradation process – since even the most current version of such plastic takes at least several months to finally decompose. … Thus, the research team has worked hard to improve and implement their new version of the configuration of such a plastic, thereby acquiring something really promising in the long term for use in different directions.

First, it is worth noting the important fact that new varieties and varieties of biodegradable plastic may actually be more effective when interacting with certain enzymes, which the team of scientists from California also talks a lot about. These enzymes can not only significantly accelerate the process of final decomposition of plastic, but also get rid of the problem of the formation of microplastics, which in one way or another is formed due to the decomposition of the main plastic structure – and it is microplastics that poses the greatest threat to the ecology and health of humans and animals, since due to its extremely small size can be found in any environment.

Experimenting with different configurations and variants of enzymes, scientists from the United States have come to the conclusion that enzymes of the proteinase-K and lipase-BC formats may be the most effective in this sense – since they help to virtually completely destroy all traces of microplastic formation. Not to mention some third-party options and points.

It is worth noting that at this point in time, the research team will strive to take advantage of the most interesting and unusual options for configurations and enzyme modifiers in order to find an even more effective and quick way to get rid of the plastic structure of the residual type – after all, this problem is one of the most common and indicative of modern ecology. Thus, it remains only to wait for subsequent changes regarding this experiment.
