Salt Lake City, UT (Dec. 19, 2020) –
Renewlogy has entered into a partnership with India-based Renew Rivers to explore how to convert river-bound plastics into feedstocks which could be made into new plastics. The project would be eligible for plastic credits under the new plastic credit initiative.
In India, roughly 80% of plastics are discarded as waste. With Renewlogy’s modular systems, it could convert this waste into valuable feedstocks. Testing of its first-ever Indian system will commence in 2021-2022.
Renewlogy has previously supported the efforts of non-profits in community cleanups and uplifting waste pickers and will continue to support these efforts. Renewlogy is also in conversations with other Indian waste cooperatives on supporting similar community-based efforts.
