Plastic Can Be Destroyed

In the News (From CNN Articles): “The Yale students had discovered that Pestalotiopsis microspora fungus can break down plastic. It’s a species of fungi that can be found in many regions of the world and can decompose polyurethane, a common plastic that is used to make things like insulation, synthetic fibers, plastic for electronics and sealants.

“Scott Strobel, the Yale biochemistry professor who instructed Anand and Russell during these experiments, says because of this discovery, the future looks promising for all types of plastic pollution. He says fungi’s potential to break down man-made materials could be endless, along with its possibilities in medicine and other fields of science.”
