In a joint effort of scientists from Nanjing Tech University together with Prof. Uwe Schröder, Prof. Uwe Bornscheuer and  Dr. Ren Wei (junior research group leader within AG Bornscheuer) from our Institute, they have developed a method to turn PET waste into a valuable resource as just published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., see here. This one-pot biocatalysis process uses the best currently known PET-ase LCC-ICCG, which now efficiently converts 84% of PET waste at 200 g/L into solid hydrated calcium terephthalate (CaTP*H2O), perfectly suited for creating anodes in lithium batteries. These batteries have an initial capacity of 164.2 mAh/g, making them a powerful and eco-friendly solution.
