A Deposit Return System for single-use plastic can save us from a derailing waste management. “A Buon Rendere – molto più di un vuoto” tries to create such a system in Italy, to move towards a circular economy.
The linear economy model is no longer sustainable. By fully applying the circular economy model, two startups from Trentino, Italy, show how waste materials can be treated and converted into resources for different industries.
Some innovations from Australia and Italy can offer a way to handle the tons of photovoltaic panels in use right now before they become waste.
By 2050 there will probably be 10 billion people living on Earth. Without any development plan focused on energy and natural resources regeneration, aren’t we too many?
Why does the “Ischia-Podetti” dump keep on growing despite all the effort of the people of Trentino to improve their home waste separation?
