This project builds on prior knowledge that the mealworm’s gut bacteria can biodegrade plastic. The goal is to determine the most feasible plastic for future degradation efforts. Mealworm trials will be fed PET, PVC and PUR. Using multiple types of statistics, a conclusion will be drawn about mealworm survival and plastic mass consumed.
