Genetically Modified Bacteria are Helping with Our Plastic Problem

By IGI Global on Jul 24, 2023
0 In a recent study conducted in China, researchers are enhancing the efficiency of plastic degradation by modifying a strain of bacteria known as Clostridium Thermocellum. This research highlights the potential of heat-friendly microbes as a rapid and efficient solution for biodegrading plastic materials. The advancements in microbiology and biotechnology led to the launch of microbial biotechnology as a separate area of research and contributed dramatically to the development of areas like agriculture, environmental maintenance, and more. The Handbook of Research on Microbial Remediation and Microbial Biotechnology for Sustainable Soil (ISBN: 9781799870623) published by IGI Global provides a detailed comprehensive account for microbial treatment technologies, bioremediation strategies, biotechnology, and the important microbial species involved in remediation.
