Plastic-eating enzyme 'cocktail' heralds new hope for plastic waste. [phys.org]
The scientists who re-engineered the plastic-eating enzyme PETase have now
created an enzyme 'cocktail' which can digest plastic up to six times faster.
A second enzyme, found in the same rubbish dwelling bacterium that lives on a diet
of plastic bottles, has been combined with PETase to speed up the breakdown of plastic.


They're talking days instead of months for the breakdown to occur!

If it's used in an enclosed environment, I could see this as a potential option. Against releasing it into the wild. Look at the genetically altered mosquitos that were supposed to be unable to reproduce and eventually kill mosquitos off.
