Poster Information
Existing methods of plastic waste treatment is:
Microbial Biodegradation
it is the most preferred way for degradation of rubber.
Most of the waste materials in demineralized by fungi, collectively called decomposers.
Present studies focusses on biodegradation of butyl rubber waste by microbes and GE microbes.

Summary: It has been reported that butyl rubber weighing more 12 billion tons is produced annually.
The problem is with their fate in environment after use.
Most of the rubber products are used onetime only and are disposed to the environment in unsafe manner.
The swelling phenomena of butyl rubber increases risk of polluting environment
Aspergillus niger a key role in degradation of butyl rubber .Therefore it will be more suitable for biodegradation.
