The hottest British researchers develop polyethyle

  • Detail

British researchers have developed polyethylene degradation additive

at present, London based polymer technology provider advanced enzymescience has developed enzymoplast, which claims that the protein and enzyme contained in this product can naturally decompose polyethylene

the company said: in Germany, about 70 plastic shopping bags are used per capita every year, while the average number in Europe is as high as 200. Every year the world produces onebillion plastic bags. Basically, the use of such plastic bags, such as agricultural plastic films or other polyethylene products, will not cause problems. However, the premise is to recycle them as much as possible, and the 100% recycled materials developed here need to be able to meet relevant quality standards or be recycled after packaging design

however, this situation is rare at present. Such materials are often dumped at will, which is very harmful to the environment, because plastic bags and plastic films can only be fully biodegradable for 500 years at most. As a result, our natural environment has been destroyed and the ocean has been seriously polluted. The scale of plastic waste in the ocean is equivalent to the land area of central Europe

according to advanced enzymescience, when the plastic bag containing enzymoplast contacts microorganisms, it can trigger the decomposition process of the self

microorganisms first devour proteins and destroy polymer chains. They activate the enzyme, use the enzyme as a catalyst (150mm is recommended) and accelerate the decomposition process. After a few months, only water and carbon dioxide will be left, said advanced enzymescience

narinder bharj, CEO of advanced enzymescience, said: of course, we highly recommend not to litter plastic bags from the beginning. Unfortunately, this is just a good wish in theory. Because of this, the use of enzymoplast is a major progress, which is beneficial to the environment, retail trade and consumers
