solar impulse efficient solution
AC Biode's new business, chemical catalysts to tackle organic waste and #plasticwaste, has been awarded and labeled as one of the "Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions" One of our catalysts carbonizes organic waste mixed with plastic on-site at a lower temperature than the existing catalysts. #COVID19 underscores our need to invest more in decentralized recycling and waste management to protect our local health and combat ocean plastic. Chemical recycling can recycle the non-recyclable, turning the most difficult-to-recycle #plastics, #oceanplastic into fuels, carbon, or virgin plastic rather than sending them to incinerators or landfills. It can take such waste and transform them to create a #circulareconomy #1000solutions
