Plastic isn’t going away any time soon. So, Wharton students Miranda Wang and Jeanny Yao have invented a bacteria capable of eating it.
And it’s only taken them four years to develop it and turn it into a company (yes, they started working on the product while still in high school). It’s called BioCellection, and it’s been on a crazy award-winning streak all year that’s already raised the company $400,000.
Needless to say, people are taking notice — including Fast Company.
Wang and Yao are hoping to pilot their product on a larger scale in China this summer.-30-
