Recycling truths and innovation

Less than 10% of plastic trash is recycled — compared to almost 90% of metals

Why? Its mainly due to the massively complicated problem of finding and sorting the different kinds of plastics. Frustrated by this waste, in this Ted video Mike Biddle explains the perils of current recycling systems and introduces a new incredibly energy efficient plant that can, and does, recycle any kind of plastic.  This is a very interesting and educational short talk..
