Congratulations to The Incubation Network for its new podcast exploring the issues and solutions on plastic pollution.
An estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic are now floating in the ocean — that’s a truckload of plastic being dumped into the ocean every minute.
Watch the first episode with Umesh Madhavan from The Circulate Initiative on what each of us can do to solve this issue.

Newsletter March 2022 Issue: Innovation in Processing Plastics Waste Enabling SDGs 2030
Usually, broken glass, textiles, and plastic bags/sachets are not considered high-value recyclables. But I have been inspired by the discovery of "heroes" who have figured out ways of making value-added products such as Green Cement and Green Ceramics from these wastes through technological innovation. These "Green" Cement and Ceramics have higher performance than conventional materials and with higher economic value, generating "green jobs" for local communities. Hope you will share my inspiration from reading this issue of our newsletter.
