The RECOVER project, funded by European funds, aims to solve the problem of the accumulation of agricultural plastics and non-recyclable packaging and microplastic contamination. It will apply biotech solutions, including a combination of microorganisms, novel enzymes, worms and insects to work collaboratively, not only to degrade plastics but also to transform them into value-added products. Among its ambitious goals, RECOVER will develop processes for bioremediation of plastic contamination in soils and compost and biotransformation of conventional plastics into biofertilizers and biodegradable plastics for agricultural and food packaging applications.
