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.
