Plastic Waste: A Path from Garbage to Healthy Resources
Thu, May 25, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM PDT
Paul Yamamoto, Director of Technology, Engineering and Research, Recology
Dr. Jesse Chu, Senior Plastic Engineer, Recology
Plastic is everywhere—in single and multiuse products and packaging. Almost all plastic ends its short, useable time in litter, waste, dumps, trash, rivers, oceans, soil or landfills. This ultimately leads to unhealthy plastic degradation and causes harm to environments throughout the world. Join us in this important discussion about Recology's mission to achieve the best and highest use of environmentally safe and healthy resources. Learn about Recology's challenges, work and research to create a practical system worldwide to reclaim, convert and remanufacture plastic particles and products into reusable, safe resources for healthy environments, people and populations.
