Plastics and microplastics in the environment is a serious global problem that threatens not only the aquatic ecosystem but also us humans. Our team, having first recognized the problem of microplastics in our city, proposed as a solution the use of microorganisms that can biodegrade the microplastics and remove them from the aquatic environment. Suitable measurements and investigations were made to make sure that the organisms are safe for the aquatic environment and that they would not disturb the habitat of the animals.
