We use bacteria for MIXed plastics biodegradation and UPcycling!

 

The main idea of MIX-UP (MIXed plastics biodegradation and UPcycling using microbial communities) is to showcase a novel approach to the circularity of the plastic life cycle and therefore addresses one of the greatest challenges of our time: the establishment of a circular (bio)-economy for plastics. The continuing demand for plastic products, the lack of appropriate recycling and the ubiquitous pollution of the environment with plastic waste pose a global challenge.

 

An ambitious vision and considerable efforts are required to change the traditional value chain of plastics to a sustainable one, based on biodegradable plastics. The ground-breaking objective is to use plastic waste as a valuable resource for the future by a sustainable, biotechnological conversion of unsorted, mixed plastics into ecological, value-added biomaterials using heavily engineered enzyme mixtures and mixed microbial communities.
