Less than 10% of plastic trash is recycled — compared to almost 90% of metals — because of the massively complicated problem of finding and sorting the different kinds. Frustrated by this waste, Mike Biddle has developed a cheap and incredibly energy efficient plant that can, and does, recycle any kind of plastic. Read Mike’s responses to questions about this talk.

Discarded plastic, too often, ends up buried or burned, not recycled (it’s just too complicated). But Mike Biddle has found a way to close the loop.
