Methods used in Biodegradation of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) by Fungi: A Review

Suhani Girish Parekh, Archana U Mankad

LDPE (low density polyethylene) are plastic material that we use in our day to day life for various purposes. It plays a major role contributing to the pollution in the world. Many microbes, specifically fungi have been known for their degradation ability of different kinds of waste. Fungi release extracellular enzymes when they act upon a particular substrate. Researchers are trying to find out ways by which LDPE can be degraded efficiently. In this article, a broad review has been provided on methods used in LDPE biodegradation by fungi. These methods can serve as a basis for further research in this direction.
