200,000 plastic bags are used globally per second, 7+trillion produced annually. Lined side by side, they can encircle the world over 7 times. Plastic bags are used in many countries across the world, its use and circulation has grave consequences on our planet’s ecosystem if irresponsible disposal attitude prevail…simply put, “we are drowning in plastic waste”..!

Tackling hunger and maintaining a sustainable environment is vital to the human survival. Plastic waste is a global challenge that must be controlled.

Konstrox Global through its network of original equipment manufacturers (OEM) is able to direct clients resources to the latest plastic waste recycling plant with respect to full cost benefit programme and stage installation and payment agreement where applicable.

Such facility will be fully maintained, local operatives training provided and ROI based on volume of processed waste. Optional financial arrangement and incentive will also be made available on bespoke terms.

Scientists Accidentally Created a Plastic Bottle-Eating Mutant Enzyme..called PETase

Plastic can take hundreds of years to break down — the mutant enzyme starts the process in days.

Now a team of scientists may be responsible for the world’s latest “happy accident” — mutant enzymes that eat plastic bottles.

The accidental discovery of a plastic-eating enzyme seems like a storybook solution to the earth’s plastic problem, considering the material itself was discovered accidentally. 

Plastic, especially harder plastics like those used to make bottles, can take hundreds of years to break down on their own. But PETase, as the modified enzyme is called, can start breaking plastic down within a few days. While PETase can’t get rid of plastic altogether, it can break plastic bottles down to their original elements, which can then be used to make recycled plastic.

Doing this “means we won’t need to dig up any more oil and, fundamentally, it should reduce the amount of plastic in the environment,” The scientists hope to further improve the enzyme, making it more efficient at breaking down plastic, so that it can be used on a larger-scale to combat plastic waste and reduce environmental degradation caused by the extraction of resources to produce new plastic. If they succeed, PETase could have a significant impact on plastic waste recycling.
