Plastic Breakdown Unit in Action

The household Plastic Breakdown Unit powers bio-engineered nanobots that mimic enzymes to break apart plastic that could never naturally degrade before. The nanobots lower the energy of activation, or the point where the chemical reaction can continue. The degrading of plastic is the chemical reaction that the PBU induces. After the nanobots deconnect the carbon-carbon plastic bonds, each carbon can connect to nitrogen, forming biologically breakable bonds.
