The Reality of the
The world uses more than 100 billion tons of raw material each year to generate products. Over 90% are materials extracted from the earth and more than three quarters of that are finite materials. Yet, in the end, less than a quarter of those materials become long-lasting things (like buildings or cars) and less than 10% goes back into the economy. The vast majority is dispersed into the environment, landfilled or emitted as pollution.
Ecogensus: Committed to Circular Economy
Ecogensus’ initial focus is on transitioning the municipal solid waste industry from majority landfill to majority recycle + re-use for fossil fuel replacement.
Though today it is labeled “waste” and headed to the landfill, we think it should be labeled a “resource” and be used to its fullest potential.
