So what do cow's stomachs have to do with plastic? Their stomachs contain bacteria that can break down plastic. Absolutely incredible the innovative research that is taking place to find solutions to the tsunami of plastic pollution.
Researchers in Vienna found that microbes in the cow’s stomach were able to degrade polyesters, due to their diets. These initial results could help scientists in the degradation of plastic and in the recycling process. At Eco6ix we are focused on seeking out solutions to the plastic problem that will make a difference to our future.
