Every year we add 300 million ton of plastic waste to the enormous waste mountain and soup we already have. Less than 10% of this is re-used or recycled. To reduce incineration, landfilling and not to dump more plastic waste in our oceans,we have to re-use and recycle much, much more and much better than we do today.
Upp! seeks to minimize transport of waste and feedstock to keep plastic in the region by building local Circular Plastic Factories. Here plastics are recycled and turned into new products and applications that fit the local market needs.
Upp! has an ambition goal of saving 250 million kilos of plastic waste every year from incineration, landfills or oceans by 2025. They are expanding across 5 countries and in more than 10 cities.
Upp! launched in 2017 and now have activities in Vietnam, The Netherlands and Singapore.
