REMOVE PLASTIC WASTE

Even the smallest among us can be big heroes.

This fund supports the plastic degradation by biological systems :

The saliva of Galleria mellonella larvae (wax worms)

is capable of oxidizing and depolymerizing polyethylene (PE),

one of the most produced and sturdy polyolefin-derived plastics. 

 

This innovation is the future solution to the global threat of plastic waste accumulation. 

Together, find global solutions for a global problem.
