Details About the talk

Kada je stvorena, plastika (gotovo) nikad ne umire. Dok su bile u četvrtom razredu srednje škole Miranda Wang i Jeanny Yao potražile su bakteriju kojom će biorazgraditi plastiku — specifično razgradnjom ftalata, štetnog plastificizera. Pronašli su odgovor koji je bio zapanjujuće blizak početnoj ideji.
