A team of Argentine scientists is using microorganisms native to Antarctica to clean up pollution from fuels and potentially plastics in Antarctica.
Significance of the research:
The research on how the microbes could help with plastic waste could have potential for wider environmental issues.
About the research:
How research can be helpful in tackling Plastic pollution?
The team of Argentine scientists have started to research on how the microbes could help clean up plastic waste elsewhere since both fuels and plastics are polymers, molecules made up of long chains of mainly carbon and hydrogen.
Verifying, please be patient.
