The main idea of MIX-UP (MIXed plastics biodegradation and UPcycling using microbial communities) is to showcase a novel approach for plastic recycling and therefore addresses one of the greatest challenges of our time: the establishment of a circular (bio)-economy for plastics. The continuing demand for plastic products, the lack of appropriate recycling and the ubiquitous pollution of the environment with plastic waste pose a global challenge. An ambitious vision and considerable efforts are required to change the traditional value chain of plastics to a sustainable one, based on biodegradable plastics. The ground-breaking objective is: plastic waste to plastic value - by a sustainable, biotechnological conversion of unsorted, mixed plastics into valuable bioplastic using heavily engineered enzyme mixtures and mixed microbial communities.

The German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure - de.NBI offers first class bioinformatics services including training and education to users in basic and applied life sciences research. In this network 40 projects belonging to eight service centers provide services that cover a wide variety of methods (genomics, proteomics, ...) and applications (from plants to humans). de.NBI-SysBio is the Systems Biology Service Center of de.NBI. In collaboration with FAIRDOM, de.NBI-SysBio serves the ...
