Waste to plastic by enzymes and bacteria

P4SB and MIX-UP - two projects facing plastic pollution and researching new, sustainable polymer recycling methods.

In the article published in bioplastics MAGAZINE the two international projects P4SB and MIX-UP, which are funded by the EU HORIZON 2020 program, are introduced. While P4SB investigated the biotransformation of non-sustainable plastic waste (e.g. PET and PU) into sustainable value-added alternative bioplastics such as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), the research in MIX-UP now researches sustainable alternatives to mechanical and chemical recycling especially focusing on mixed plastic waste.
