White Pollution

The increasing total amount of polyfoam (EPS) waste disposed at landfills in Hong Kong has given rise to white pollution, plastic which is contaminating the soil and water, posing choking hazards to wildlife and negatively impacting humans at the top of the food chain.

In this lecture, WIT, an EPS recycling service provider, will address the current challenges for EPS recycling in Hong Kong and the means for stakeholder engagement to facilitate EPS recycling. WIT will also share how their latest innovative Ultimo Technology, which differs from the traditional EPS recycling method, provides a more effective and efficient EPS Treatment that could help in Hong Kong's efforts to reach a circular economy for EPS.
