The scarcity of resources and environmental pollution are the main problems that people face when realizing the concept of sustainable development in the 21st century. Biotechnology will become one of the core technologies to solve this problem. Among the many factors that cause environmental pollution, the ecological crisis caused by plastic waste has aroused widespread concern in society. Next, let’s take a look at the environmental improvement of degradable plastics.
Degradable plastics are plastics that can be dissolved by microorganisms in the soil. With the help of bacteria or their hydrolytic enzymes, these substances can be dissolved in carbon dioxide, water, cellular porous materials and salt, and they can be completely dissolved by microorganisms and re-enter the ecosystem. It is a research and development hotspot in countries all over the world today.
Therefore, biodegradable plastic usually refers to a new type of plastic that has a certain impact toughness and can be completely or partially dissolved by bacteria, molds, algae and other microorganisms in the natural environment without causing environmental pollution. When bacteria or their hydrolase enzymes convert the polymer into small fragments, biodegradation occurs, and the bacteria further dissolve it into chemicals such as carbon dioxide and water.
