      30 May 2019

World Environment Day is a platform for action and encouraging awareness for the protection of our environment. UBQ sees the importance of reducing the solid waste going to the landfills, as it poses a huge problem and has economic and environmental impact. In this interview, Tato Bigio, CEO at UBQ Materials mentions how humanity is “drowning in waste”, the gravity of the problem and a solution that gives hope for a cleaner future.


“UBQ uses the materials that can’t be recycled,- says Tato Bigio, UBQ CEO, -there will always be a fraction which is a majority of the garbage, such as food waste, mixed plastic, diapers, carton, paper- that will end up in landfills. We take that waste! We don’t compete with the recycling, we complement it.”
