Scientists discover an enzyme that can Eliminate plastic wastes

Scientists have accidentally discovered a mutant enzyme that can fully eat up and decompose common plastic, and could help the world solve the problem of plastic waste. Researchers in the US and UK examined an existing enzyme which had occurred naturally in landfill sites and was able to slowly digest man-made plastics. But in the course of testing the enzyme's origins, the researchers made biological changes to it that turbo-charged its ability to digest plastics, according to Britain's University of Portsmouth. According to The Guardian, the enzyme starts breaking down plastic in a matter of days, a process which would take centuries under normal conditions. The enzyme is called PETase, because it eats polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the lightweight plastic used in bottled water and soft drinks. Professor John McGeehan, one of the scientists leading the study, said: "Serendipity often plays a significant role in fundamental scientific research and our discovery here …
