Plastic’s Eureka Moment is Here

Western Countries produce a lot of plastic waste.

Most of it ends up in landfills, or dumped illegally in the ocean or the countryside.

Most people think it’s useless.

We disagree.

Unwanted Plastic → Energy

Traditional approaches to dealing with plastic rely the faulty assumption that we can and will recycle all or most of our plastic.

Unfortunately, 91% of the plastic we use is not recycled.

This is where we come in:

Create safer conditions for workers

By using proprietary methods that treat hazardous waste more gently, we eliminate much of the hazards of processing e-waste.

Make electronics environmentally sustainable

By strategically re-using electronic components, we can make use of the e-waste we have now, while also decreasing the mining of minerals for and manufacturing of those same components in the future.

Reduce waste in the recycling process

By recovering re-usable electronic components at a large scale, we decrease the percentage of recycled waste that still ends up in the landfill.

Deploy homegrown solutions to our waste problems

We have a recycling problem in this country, and we can no longer ship it to someone else and make it their problem. We’re up to the challenge.
