Waste is ubiquitous, can solutions be ubiquitous too? Well, it can be, if the solution conceptualized by UBQ Materials is scaled up according to Rachel Barr who joins me for a conversation.
- Diverting waste from landfills
- What is UBQ material?
- The climate positive process of conversion
- Supporting a circular economy by reimagining waste
- Scaling up UBQ materials in the developing world
UBQ™ is a bio-based thermoplastic made from 100% unsorted household waste, including all organics and unrecyclable materials. UBQ™ can be used in existing manufacturing processes and is already implemented across industries to replace oil-based resins. By using UBQ™, manufacturers are diverting waste from landfills and incineration, reducing the net carbon footprint of end-products, and supporting a circular economy.
