20/09/22 – Our partners from RWTH Aachen University, Dr Till Tiso and Prof. Lars Blank, have contributed to a recently published review on the current situation regarding the biodegradation of synthetic plastics. The review covers the synthesis and application of the most promising plastic-degrading enzymes, biotechnological approaches for improving biodegradation and the bioconversion of plastic waste into value-added compounds. A link to the publication ‘Current progress on the biodegradation of synthetic plastics: from fundamentals to biotechnological applications’ can be found here.
