Cleaning up Plastic Pollution using Synthetic.
Despite current recycling technologies 90% of post consumer plastic waste becomes pollution. Polystyrene has very low recyclability and makes up one third of marine pollution. BioCellection is engineering bacteria to upcycle polystyrene into a valuable bio surfactant called rhamnolipid.BioCellection was founded by technical co founders who have worked on the science behind the developing invention for the past five years and currently hold three provisional patents for this technology. In 2013 co founders Miranda and Jeanny were invited to speak at TED about their plastic eating bacteria research which began as a science fair project from high school. Since then the research and development has evolved to take on to not only ocean plastics but polystyrene and film plastics that are being thrown into the landfill each year. Currently the management team receives mentorship from world class experts in science biotech scale up and business development and has investors from USA China and Europe.
