South Dakota Public Broadcasting Interview South Dakota Mines researcher fighting plastics with microbes

Interview at South Dakota Public Broadcasting

Tanvi Govil

Using plastics on agricultural land could expose South Dakotans’ food and water to microplastics. Biodegradable plastics may change that.

Tanvi Govil, Ph.D, is a research scientist at South Dakota Mines. She’s working on genetically engineering microbes to produce bioplastics.
