Przełom w utylizacji plastików?

Mącznik młynarek (Tenebrio molitor) jest chrząszczem z rodziny czarnuchowatych, wielkości do 2 cm.

Jest szkodnikiem – często żyje w magazynach mąki i zboża, w piekarniach. Jest też hodowany na pokarm dla jaszczurek, gekonów trzymanych w terrariach. Larwy mącznika są również podawane w restauracjach w Azji.

Naukowcy z Uniwersytetu Stanforda przeprowadzili badania larw mącznika. Okazuje się, że ten szkodnik może zrewolucjonizować gospodarkę plastikowymi odpadami.

Larwy mącznika potrafią bowiem przeżyć żywiąc się jedynie plastikiem. I to bez szkody dla organizmu. Dzięki florze bakteryjnej jelit, plastik jest przerabiany na biodegradowalne składniki.

W Europie tylko do 30% odpadów plastikowych jest przetwarzanych ponownie. Pozostałe trafiają na wysypiska.

Czy ten niewielki chrząszcz przyczyni się do utylizacji plastików na skalę przemysłową? Miejmy nadzieję, że tak.
