Let’s help us to save the planet from plastics!
The Project Bio3Pas intends to use aquatic fungi to degrade plastics. Using fungi from the collection of the Centre of Molecular and Environmental Biology, with a high capacity to break chemical bonds similar to those found in plastics, we hope to achieve a way to help the planet to be free of plastics, minimizing their negative impacts on aquatic fauna, especially birds, turtles, and cetaceans.
