Innovation Forum: Can waste be converted into plastic?

23.11.2020 Share

This week: Tato Bigio, CEO of UBQ Materials Israel, explains how waste destined for landfill can be converted into new thermoplastic material that can take the place of traditional plastics in potentially thousands of products. He says that the thermoplastic is competitive on price, significantly cuts emissions and outperforms traditional plastic on a full lifecycle analysis basis.

Plus, in the news digest: Unilever pledges to halve food waste and boost non-meat products; UK’s ten-point green recovery plan; slow corporate progress according to new human rights benchmark; and, how RSPO certification can help farmer community incomes – but additional resources often required.
