Two substances in the saliva of wax worms - moth larvae that eat wax made by bees to build honeycombs - readily break down a common type of plastic, researchers said on Tuesday, in a potential advance in the global fight against plastic pollution. The researchers said the two enzymes identified in the caterpillar saliva were found to rapidly and at room temperature degrade polyethylene, the world's most widely used plastic and a major contributor to an environmental crisis extending from ocean trenches to mountaintops. The study builds on the researchers' 2017 findings that wax worms were capable of degrading polyethylene, though at that time it was unclear how these small insects did it.

Cutting energy subsidies and other ineffective public spending while increasing transfers to the poorest families can free cash for some of these projects, while a simpler and broader tax code can be both more progressive and generate more revenue, according to the World Bank. As economies digest last year's strong reopening rebound, regional economic output is forecast to grow 3% this year but is seen decelerating to 1.6% in 2023, the report showed, calling next year's expected growth rate insufficient to significantly reduce poverty.
