Philips – Design Probes – Paternoster plastic waste up-cycler

 

“The paternoster waste up-cycler concept utilizes the properties of fungi that have powerful enzymes and decomposing power. A mycelium attached to plastic, would have the ability to decompose and metabolize the plastic. Provided the inks on the plastic did not contain toxic heavy metals, this mycelium could in theory generate edible mushrooms.”
