An amazing plastic-eating enzyme has invented

An amazing plastic-eating enzyme has invented

Scientists have created an amazing enzyme which can eat plastic. The scientists have been researching from many years till present time to solve the problem of plastic pollution. At present one group of scientists have invented a kind of enzyme which can eat plastic or destroy plastic successfully. It is a mind-blowing success of the scientists to create the new enzyme which will be helpful for destroying plastic. So it can consider as a plastic eater.

The hard works of the scientists are face to success at last. They could invent the expectable solution of the plastic pollution successfully. Researchers found a new kind of bacterium with a few tweaks. Then they found that the bug could be turned into a mutant enzyme which started to eat plastic easily.

Many scientific inventions of the modern science like penicillin, X-rays, pacemakers, the microwavehad gotten accidentally. The new enzyme has invented accidentally also. At first, the researchers found a bacterium in a waste dump in Japan. The enzyme has produced by the bug. The scientists studied with the enzyme to use it for getting 10 billion times bright X-rays. At first, the enzyme looked similar to break down cutin of any bacteria. After some manipulation, the team could improve its ability to eat a PET. The full form of PET is polyethene terephthalate. This kind of plastic uses in drinks bottles.

Professor John McGeehan had led the research from the University of Portsmouth. He said: “The discovery was a bit of a shock." The mutant enzyme will back plastic into original components. McGeehan said: "It means we won't need to dig up any more oil and, fundamentally, it should reduce the amount of plastic in the environment."He also said: "It gives us scope to use all the technology used in other enzyme development for years and years and make a super-fast enzyme." The enzyme can be used as a spray on the oceans to breakdown the plastics into original components easily. The invention of the mutant enzyme will help us to stop the pollution created by plastic.
