The Guardian: Microbes discovered that can digest plastics at low temperatures


In the Arctic, scientists recently discovered a microbe that can feed on certain plastic materials. These microbes are different from plastic-digesting microbes that have already been discovered as those already discovered require hotter environments, which can require energy. However, these newly-discovered microbes can operate at 15C (59 F). Click here to learn more about these microbes.
