UBQ at Global Plastic Summit 2020

The annual Global Plastic Summit will take place October 21-23.

      8 Sep 2020

The virtual conference is a collaboration between IHS Markit and the Plastics Industry Association, and this year’s theme is “An Industry in Transition: Drivers Shaping the Future of Plastics”.


The global industry is expanding and adapting to COVID-19, and advancing towards a circular economy is a top priority for plastics manufacturers. Can the industry adapt to the forces that are reshaping the role of plastics? How will the industry respond?


Tato Bigio, co-founder of UBQ and CEO of UBQ Israel, will be speaking about UBQ Materials’ groundbreaking process and technology on October 23rd at 11:15 a.m. EST. Join us for a talk titled “Why waste waste? Converting unsorted household waste into a climate-positive thermoplastic material”.


UBQ Materials has developed an advanced conversion technology, patenting the world’s first thermoplastic material made of unsorted household waste. A revolutionary way to divert waste from landfills and transform it into an effective, bio-based, recyclable material with infinite applications as a substitute for conventional plastics.


By taking organic materials that would otherwise decompose in landfills, UBQ Materials prevents the emission of methane and other toxins. Producing one ton of UBQ™ prevents 11.7 tons of CO2eq (GWP20) from polluting the environment, leading Quantis to define UBQ™ as ‘the most climate-positive thermoplastic material on the market’.


In this talk, Bigio will give an update on the climate-positive products currently being created with UBQ™ throughout the plastics industry, helping numerous companies offset their carbon emissions. Bigio will explain why he believes UBQ™ has the potential to eliminate landfills, replace linear consumption models with a circular economy, and create a world where waste is no longer wasted.
