Biotechnology student Lucas van der Maas wants to give bio-plastics a second lease of life!

Bio-plastics are manufactured from natural products and are thus biodegradable. However, as yet, there is no successful method for the biorecycling of bio-plastics without loss of raw materials and energy. Lucas, a student at Wageningen University of Applied Sciences, wants to develop a solution for this using micro-organisms.
