The coffee cup of the future
from Tech Flash
The University of Washington spin out is unveiling a technology that transforms recycled plastic soda, juice and water bottles into reusable plastic which MicroGreen claims is stronger, lighter and more cost-effective than the alternatives. It does this by reducing the amount of source material needed to create new plastic products. For example, MicroGreen says that its technology can convert the source material from one 20-ounce plastic bottle into seven 12-ounce InCycle hot beverage cups. "At MicroGreen Polymers, we're focused on creating a world where plastic packaging is not seen as waste, but as a resource," said CEO Tom Malone in announcing the new technology.
