Why We Do It


To solve the problem of plastic waste

Background

The Big Problem with Plastic

Plastic is causing severe environmental, social, economic and health crises. We have become addicted to single use plastic. Globally, every minute over one million plastic bottles are purchased and annually up to five trillion plastic bags are used and then thrown away.

Plastic is causing the following threats to the environment:

Time it takes to degrade / Degradation time
Clandestine burning
Some of these plastics block up sewers and drains.
At present, techniques for recycling and transformation of plastics by means of reversible processes are known, obtaining different types of mix of light and heavy hydrocarbons or some specific hydrocarbons such as kerosene, diesel or gasoline.
These processes do not obtain these hydrocarbons simultaneously and specifically their yields and efficiencies are low and their process costs are high because they use catalysts or expensive equipment and complicated infrastructure.
Plastic waste is littering our oceans and threatening the lives of millions of marine animals. Seals, whales, dolphins, seabirds, fish, crabs and many other animals are dying and becoming sick because of this deadly environmental concern.
Microplastics are tiny pieces of plastic which come from larger plastics that have degraded over time. After ingesting microplastics, seals, and other animals can suffer for months or even years before they die.
Plastic Islands have formed in the Oceans. It is estimated that 1.15 to 2.41 million tons of plastic are entering the ocean each year from rivers. More than half of this plastic is less dense than the water, meaning that it will not sink once it encounters the sea.
