It has been a question on everyone’s minds as we watch the plastic pollution problem rapidly evolve into a global issue. What do we do with all of this plastic waste? It is estimated that the world produces over 400 million tonnes of plastic waste every year and that number is rising with each passing year.
While stopping this pollution at the source is one solution, there still remains countless tonnes of waste floating in our oceans and cluttering our coastlines. There have been a slew of innovative new ways to deal with plastic waste including converting it into things like construction materials and even 3D printer feedstock. Everyone is thinking of new solutions: from small environmental startups to massive conglomerates like Waste Management (NYSE:WM) and Veolia Environnement (OTC:VEOEY).
Another company that’s making a difference around the world? Clean Vision Corp (OTCQB:CLNV), a small California business that is establishing plastic conversion networks in multiple international markets. These already include India, Morocco, and Turkey, with more on the way. Through its subsidiary CleanSeas, it is able to convert collected plastic waste into clean energy fuel sources like its hydrogen-based product, AquaH. If you’re looking at companies that are making a difference in the plastic waste industry, keep your eyes on Clean Vision.
