Plastic Bottles can now be Recycled in Hours

Plastic Bottles can now be Recycled in Hours
Typically only 30% of plastic from bottles is recycled into new weaker ones, but now researchers have discovered a method that converts 90% of that plastic back into full-strength plastic for reuse.

The mutant enzyme created by researchers from Carbios breaks down plastic in a matter of hours. They have partnered with Pepsi and L'Oreal to produce truly recycled plastic, not just a weaker plastic that can only be used to make carpets or clothing.

They hope to be able to have their method of recycling up to industry-case levels within five years.
