The use of plastic products is increasing day by day. From home cooking to every purpose, plastic products are used. As a result, plastic garbage is increasing in the world day by day. Which is constantly falling into the drain, into the river or into the sea.
As a result, the ecosystem of the sea is deteriorating and the roads are being submerged in the water when there is a little rain in the urban areas. As a result, scientists of France have given good news to get rid of this existing plastic
They say they have invented a method to break the plastic in just a few hours using the composted leaves enzymes.
Meanwhile, a company in France called Carbios is reportedly in the process of discovering the method. The company has already planned to produce and market the new ingredient, jointly with American multinational food, snack, and beverage company PepsiCo and France’s International cosmetics and beauty company L’Oréal, over the next five years.
Martin Stefan, deputy executive vice president of the Carbios Company, said their company aims to bring the new technology to market by 2024 to 2025.
In this case, the inventors are claiming the new invention as a significant step forward in solving plastic problems. Because the newly invented enzyme can complete at least 90 percent de-polymerization within 10 hours.
That is, it can convert polymer or large complex particles into tiny particles in less than a day. It takes the form of organic depolymerized plastic, which can be used to make plastic, like plastic bottles. As a result, recycled plastic products can be manufactured at low cost, experts said.
Meanwhile, officials in Carbios say ‘the new innovation will bring about a radical change in the field of plastics and textiles. Which will solve environmental and market-friendly economic problems.”
