“Taking something that is a burden on humanity and bringing it back to consumption”
That is how Jack Bigio, the co-founder and co-CEO of UBQ Materials, described what his company does. “We are saving landfills, we are saving materials, and we are replacing oil-based materials.”
“UBQ has developed a revolutionary technology that enables us to convert household waste,” co-CEO of UBQ Materials Jack Bigio explained Monday in an interview with CTech at Calcalist’s Energy conference, “Without the need for separation we convert it into a new thermoplastic material, a new plastic that is made off all these materials, so we are saving landfills, we are saving materials, and basically, we are replacing oil-based materials like polypropylene, polyethylene, and polyester, that are expensive and are scarce.
“So we are taking something that is a burden on humanity which is waste that goes to landfills and bringing it back to consumption with a very green carbon-negative material,” he added.
