A World Without Waste

Where there are people, there is waste. With so many of us, the amount of waste generated has reached 2 billion tons a year and continues to grow at an alarming rate. What if there was a way to put all this waste to good use? This is exactly the question that sparked the foundation of UBQ Materials. We set out on a mission to rethink the very notion of waste and turn it into something good, useful, even celebrated. For thousands of years, consumption was a straight line, and at the end of it was a pile of garbage. With UBQ, waste is not the end, it is only the beginning. The beginning of a new material and the building block of a world without waste.

UBQ Stands for Ubiquitous

The problem of waste is ubiquitous, and therefore, the solutions must be as well. At UBQ, we turn unsorted household waste, including all organics, into UBQ™, a climate-positive, cost-competitive, and fully recyclable raw material. A sustainable substitute to plastic, UBQ™ is a circular solution that diverts waste from landfills and incineration, and preserves finite natural resources.

MADE WITH UBQ™ is a symbol of sustainable manufacturing, one where trash is transformed into a valuable material and waste is no longer wasted. It stands for a circular economy, where we actively choose a brighter future for generations to come.

 

Products MADE WITH UBQ™:

  • Divert waste
  • Replace plastic
  • Prevent emissions
  • Preserve natural resources
  • Support a circular economy
