AI-based plastic recycling technology. A machine learning model was used to generate novel mutations to the natural enzyme PETase that allows bacteria to quickly degrade PET plastics, facilitating recovery & reuse of plastics at molecular level. Article: Machine learning-aided engineering of hydrolases for PET depolymerization. By Lu, H., Diaz, D.J., Czarnecki, N.J. et al. published 2022 in Nature 604, 662-667.
