We appear to have solved the very vexing issue. Regarding the pollution of our seas, beaches and bays from the menace of plastics litter. An exciting new discovery through creating an enzyme. That eats away at these plastics at a faster rate than ever achieved previously.
A team of researchers from the University of Portsmouth. Has created the enzyme through a combination with a previous creation that was targeted at PET bottles. The time that it takes to breakdown these plastics can be in the 100-year range. This creation by them however amazingly has cut that time into days.
This is indeed is a most welcome development. Projections for an increase in plastics pollution has been remorselessly climbing until now. This will ease the pressure on the environment considerably.
