END TO PLASTIC WASTE POLLUTION

Circular economy solutions for sustainable plastic waste management

WASTE has over 40 years’ experience in plastic waste management with a strong focus on business development, resource recovery and circular economy. This experience builds on a track record of projects in Asia and Africa where we work with a broad network of local partners. Way ahead of its time and still valid for enterprises in low- aand middle-income countries, WASTE already published “Plastic Waste – Options for small-scale resource recovery” in 1995 (available here). An example of a recent project in business development in plastic recycling is ECOTYLES, a startup in Kenya producing roofing tiles out of plastic waste.  Also check out our Plastic Waste Free Cities project, FINILOOP.
