PORTSMOUTH - Scientists at the University of Portsmouth have launched a research project to develop their ‘plastic-eating’ enzyme technology to target polyester textile waste.

Researchers at the university’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation have already developed enzyme technology to reduce single use plastics, including PET, to their chemical building blocks to recycle them back into plastic bottles.

Now they have set their sights on creating a similar process for polyester, the world's most widely-used clothing textile which commonly ends end up as waste in landfill or incinerators.
