According to a May 6, 2020 article in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.est.0c01495 researchers in the Republic of Korea have shown that polystyrene may be degraded by Pseudomonas sp. isolated from the gut of “Superworms” - “... the significance of these findings goes beyond the discovery of a novel function of Pseudomonas sp. DSM 50071 in the gut of superworms, highlighting a potential solution for PS biodegradation …” #Polystyrene #SingleUsePlastic #PlasticWaste
