Have any of you heard of The Thought Emporium on YouTube? He uses "Super worms" to eat styrofoam:

He also mentioned then-teenage Daniel Burd who developed bacteria that ate 43% of a sample of plastic in six weeks:



He followed up with 2,000 "Super Worms" in a 5-gallon bucket, with a screened hole in the bottom emptying into another 5-gallon bucket. He fed them 70% recycled styrofoam peanuts, misted them with water periodically, and started testing the styfoam by-product, but that was two years ago, he has moved five times since, and the project is shelved indefinitely:



He has other cool projects and mentioned The King of Random twice and Cody's Lab once.
