How can we keep our beaches looking like this?

World’s Top 50 Innovators 2019 – 23rd to 25th September 2019

The oceans are in trouble. Recent research from the World Economic Forum has revealed that 12 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean each year. What can we do – right now – to solve this problem? The good news is that some innovators have dedicated themselves to reversing mankind’s mistakes.

What if we could make plastic so valuable on land, that no one wants to dump it in the sea. Adrian Griffiths, CEO, Recycling Technologies, has developed a technology that can recycle 90% of all plastics, in a form that’s fully re-usable and sustainable. Listen to Adrian’s Codex Talk below on how to create a circular economy by recycling the un-recyclable, in the Technologies to Preserve the Oceans session.
