To upcycle polystyrene into a valuable biosurfactant.
Plastic pollution is a global crisis that threatens the lives of wildlife and the food safety for 4 billion people. 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 biosurfactant called rhamnolipid.
