With the world’s population producing a growing amount of plastic waste, the need for new and improved recycling methods is crucial.
Studies show that recycling more efficiently can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by minimising energy consumption and using raw materials. Unfortunately, the world is also generating twice as much plastic waste as twenty years ago, with most of it ending up in landfills, incinerated, or dumped into the environment. According to some reports, we only correctly recycle around 9% of our plastic waste.
But is there a way to combat our waste problem with innovative recycling solutions? Could science, technology, and thinking outside the box alleviate our reliance on unsustainable waste disposal methods? Discover the latest recycling methods and find out where the future could lead.
