UBQ Materials Bio-Based Thermoplastic used in Central Virginian Recycling Pilot Program

The waste management authority of Central Virginia (CVWMA) has launched a partnership with UBQ Materials and will soon begin a pilot program which will provide 2,000 of its consumers with a recycling bin made with UBQ Materials’ patented technology. This technology converts unsorted household waste — organic, paper and plastic, including banana peels, dirty diapers, used yogurt containers and cardboard into bio-based thermoplastic. Tato Bigio of UBQ Materials reported that he was “hopeful that within a few years, every Virginian will be able to dispose of their recycling in a UBQ bin and many more products will be made out of this remarkable material”. This is a terrific kickoff to the U.S. Market.
