By biodegrading plastic using C. reinhardtii, plastic pollution will be reduced. This will help the marine environment as well as us too. Without plastic roaming and destroying our oceans, marine life will increase and the animals will not be in such dangers of eating plastic or getting tangled in it. Not to mention many animals will not get sick due to the plastic being in their bodies as a result of them consuming it.This will help the death rate of the animals go down and preserve the marine life as we know it. Being able to use the Biocycler in many places such as homes and workplaces will help prevent plastic to ever enter the ocean and safe the marine life.
