Bioneering the future
Wax moth larvae
Only recently discovered, wax worms are able to break down plastics.
The chain molecule PET is broken down into the organic compounds Ethylene glycol and Terephthalic acid.
Bio-recycling container working with bio-agents
PET – Input
Pre-treated PET like plastic bottles, bags and other packaging are thrown into the box
Wax worms shred the incoming PET to micro-plastic by chewing it up
PETase enzymes decompose the micro-plastic into basic compounds
The organic compounds Terephthalic acid and Ethylene glycol can be re-used instead of taking more fossil resources
Our cradle to cradle model closes the gap in the recycling process of plastics. We believe this is an important step towards sustainability.
Only together can we change the world.
