Israeli startup UBQ Materials has developed a patented process to convert unsorted household waste into a climate positive plastic substitute that can be made into everyday goods. UBQ recently rolled out a pilot partnership with the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority in the United States, which acquired 2,000 recycling bins made from the Israeli firm's thermoplastic material. Founded in 2012 and based in Kibbutz Tze'elim in Israel's south, UBQ Materials takes unsorted household waste – consisting of roughly 80 percent organic material and 20 percent plastic - and breaks it down to a nearly molecular level, converting it into a bio-based thermoplastic that can be integrated into existing manufacturing processes. KAN's Naomi Segal heard more from UBQ co-founder and CEO Jack (Tato) Bigio.
