A biobased thermoplastic made from 100% unsorted landfill-destined waste that can replace oil-based resins
UBQ Materials transforms unsorted household waste, including all organics such as food leftovers, cardboard packaging, and garden trimmings alongside mixed plastics and even dirty diapers, into the most climate-positive thermoplastic material on the market – the UBQ™ material. UBQ™ is a drop-in material that can be used by existing manufacturers to replace oil-based plastics to create products with a reduced or even negative carbon footprint, without compromising profitability. By using the UBQ™ material, manufacturers are diverting waste from landfills, preserving natural resources, and preventing methane emissions. Possible applications expand across many different industries, from logistics, furniture, and retail to automotive, construction, and even 3D printing. Every ton of UBQ™ prevents 11.7 tons of CO2eq from polluting the environment, leading LCA auditors Quantis to designate UBQ™ as ‘ The Most Climate Positive Thermoplastic Material on the Market’
Saved the equivalent of more than 6,500 kg of ghg emissions = equivalent to 534 trees co2eq sequestration
Every kilogram of Israeli-manufactured UBQ™ replaces 1 kg of oil-based plastic, diverts 1.3 kg of waste from landfills and incinerators, and prevents up to 11.7 kg of CO2eq emissions measured over a 20-year time horizon.
The development of Mainetti garment hangers containing UBQ™ material has resulted in hangers with a significantly reduced carbon footprint. These sustainable products are currently pending Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C)™ certification.
By diverting waste from landfills, every kilogram of UBQ™ produced prevents up to 12 kilograms of CO2eq from polluting the environment. For the single pilot project in Brazil, this means a reuse of over 650 kg of unrecyclable waste and the prevention of 5,800 kg of CO2eq.
