A accidental discovery took place some days back. It is found that wax worms could discompose plastic. Plastic which is said to be a non biodegradable material has been a pain in the ass for a long time. Need for plastic is very high. But at the same time saving for environment is more important.
Wax worms were being kept in a plastic bag, after sometime the person noticed that the plastic had been torn into pieces and had been consumed by the wax worms. He then observed the worms carefully and found out that the plastic had been digested and decomposed by the wax worms.
Researches have already been started on this topic. If it turns out to be positive it would be a worthy discovery.
