TED Lecture:  Mike Biddle – We CAN recycle Plastic; Edinburgh  October 2011.  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 of plastic.  Frustrated by this waste, Mike Biddle has developed a cheap and incredibly8 energy efficient plant that can, and does, recycle any kind of plastic.  http://www.ted.com/talks/mike_biddle.html

About actionforinvolvment

We're an independent think tank, founded in 2006 to bring people in our communities together with policymakers and stakeholders. We create space often in a workshop format to pool ideas, develop networks and tackle hot topics. Since 2009, we’ve focused on the sustainability agenda such as: climate change, energy, housing, technology, transport with interest in:education, health, welfare, regulation and enforcement. Our latest project is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious Grant and our next event on 27th June 2013 includes George Monbiot with other high level environmental policy makers.
