Consortium for Waste Circularity

The Consortium for Waste  Circularity (CWC) is driven by purpose. We envision a world where waste is treated as a valuable resource. Members are using their voice to transform the processing of ALL waste, not just plastics in the creation of a circular sustainable economy. We envision a world where molecules derived from nature’s precious resources can be used and reused in an endless loop of circularity. CWSC aims to align the packaging industry to follow a science-based route of all waste to syngas to “green methanol” for the production of virgin packaging materials. This puts end the practice of landfills and incineration.
