Science contribute to recycles plastic bottles in hours

The journal Nature published on April 8th, 2020 the scientific work stating that bacterial enzyme originally found in compost can be used to make high-quality new bottles -new mutant enzyme that recycles plastic bottles in hours. The enzyme, originally discovered in a compost heap of leaves, reduced the bottles to chemical building blocks that were then used to make high-quality new bottles. Existing recycling technologies usually produce plastic only good enough for clothing and carpets.
