Lloyd’s spotted something interesting in the news recently: plastic-eating enzymes. This new method of recycling seems to be a perfect solution to plastic pollution, but could it really transform the way we use and re-use our plastic?
With help from Daniel Acosta (University of Texas Austin), who is a part of the team behind some ground-breaking new research into the enzyme FAST-PETase, Lily guides Lloyd through the fascinating world of enzyme engineering, and helps him to understand how enzymes could change the way we recycle forever.
