UBQ Materials Receives the Zero Waste Award

Today, global society produces over 2 billion tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) annually. This number is expected to double in the next 30 years. Waste is a ubiquitous problem that requires immediate, long-term solutions. With slightly more than a decade left to reduce global warming levels, UBQ has recognized that a zero-waste approach is one of the fastest, cheapest, and most effective ways to reduce emissions and accelerate the transition to a circular economy.


UBQ has developed a material with equally ubiquitous potential to be utilized in manufacturing across industries. UBQ’s advanced conversion technology transforms the entirety of unsorted household waste destined to landfill (from banana peels and dirty diapers to unrecyclable plastics and dirty cardboard), into the UBQ™ material – a sustainable, recyclable, bio-based material that can be used to substitute conventional plastic, concrete, and wood in the manufacturing of everyday products.


“Novel end-of-life solutions for society’s virtually limitless household waste are imperative to address the global climate emergency. With landfills accounting for over 15 percent of all human-related methane emissions, there is an urgent need to rethink how we process waste.” – Tato Bigio, Co-Founder and CEO, UBQ Materials.
