UBQ : Waste Conversion Technology

Conversion of household waste into up-cycled bio-based materials


The UBQ technology is an advanced waste conversion technology to produce sustainable bio-based materials as a substitute to conventional oil-based plastics.

The valorozation occurs on all food waste and organics, from banana peels to chicken bones, as well as other typically unrecycled materials, like dirty plastics or packaging. The closed-loop process reduces this residual household waste into many of its basic natural components. At an almost molecular level, these natural components reconstitute themselves and bind together to form a new homogeneous composite with thermoplastic properties. UBQ Materials are upcycled composites that can be recycled.
