worming our way out of plastic waste
Problem? The plastic pollution …
Polystyrene is one of the most used
plastic in the world and it is also
one of the less recycled…
It is mainly produced to be burnt, buried
or thrown away to the environment
Solution! Worms that eat plastic
Recently, scientific studies have
demonstrated that one insect species
is capable to biodegrade polystyrene:
the mealworm (Tenebrio molitor)
The Idea: biodegradation of plastics
Our team is now developing a farm project where mealworms would be reared to eat and biodegrade tons of polystyrene per year. No worries, the mealworms live perfectly in health after consuming plastic waste!
Our Vision: a mealworms farm
