  • A research team from the University of Texas has found a new way to speed up the process of breaking down plastic.
  • Their modified enzyme has reduced the amount of time it takes for plastic to degrade – from months to a single week.
  • This is called depolymerization that allows the broken plastic to be reconstituted back into virgin PET plastic.
