Start up a new project: Closing the Loop -Scaling up Innovation to Tackle Marine Plastic Pollution in ASEAN cities-

“Of 7.8 billion ton of plastic produced globally since 1950, 6.3 billion ton has become waste, of which only 9 % has been recycled and 79% has been littered to the environment including ocean. (Geyer et al. 2017)”

“In a business-as-usual scenario, the ocean is expected to contain 1 ton of plastic for every 3 tons of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish (by weight). (The World Economic Forum and Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2016)”
