It is a fact that plastics are largely resistant to biodegradation. However, a happy accident showed that moth caterpillars can quite easily eat themselves out of a plastic bag, so Paolo Bombelli, Christopher J. Howe and Federica Bertocchini (University of Cambridge & Spanish National Research Council) have discovered.
On average, delegates heard, 8% of end-of-life electronics end up in the household waste bin each year while almost 9.5 million tonnes of e-scrap is generated across the EU (plus Norway and Switzerland).
Red and white plastic were practically drowning the Dutch shores, says Fitzroy. The company suggests moving towards a cleaner world by rethinking one of the favourite ways of consuming: drinking.
And so, Fitzroy launched a dedicated collection scheme, which also allowed it to recycle any glass bottles for the production of what it calls a ‘sustainable chic’ spirits line and the ‘perfect rum and coke mix’.
Enviroserve UAE has been commissioned by Dubai Wholesale City to build the 228 000 sq ft e-cycling plant employing ‘state-of-the-art’ equipment and with a capacity to process 39 000 tons of e-scrap per annum.
According to Marionnaud, only around 50% of people in France currently recycle beauty product packaging while just one in five recycles nail varnish or make-up product containers.
GRC Wireless was founded in 2002 by wireless industry veterans Marc Leff and Henry Garcia. Both founders were involved in the wireless industry since its infancy in the late 1980s, and started looking into phone recycling when they saw the rapidly growing stream of post-consumer handhelds.
'Our 15 year motto has been ''We Transform Environmental Challenge into Great Opportunity''. We believe in this principle now more than ever,' comments company president Marc Leff.
