As long as we only remove recyclable materials from waste streams and continue to incinerate or landfill the vast majority, our raw materials deficit will continue to increase. To close the loop, we need new technologies.
Resources are turned into waste faster than waste can be turned back into resources.
A radical change in resource recovery is needed.
With current technologies, the recycling industry is not able to compensate the loss of raw materials. By 2050, the consumption of raw materials will triple, which is far beyond what the Earth can supply.
To allow a radical change, we must think beyond recycling and start upcycling.
Our first upcycle factory will recover near 100% of the Technology Metals present in electrical and electronic waste (WEEE)
Wherever you are on your Circular Economy journey, we can help your organisation by transforming sustainable challenges into opportunities.
In contrast to the usual mechanical extraction of raw materials from wastes, we are going to recover raw materials at a molecular level.
