We need a global science panel on chemicals and waste
Chemical pollution is a global threat that demands for global action, says Zhanyun Wang. An interface body similar to the IPCC could help bridge the gap between science and policy. Chemicals are at the heart of our modern world. But the way the world deals with chemicals is highly inadequate. Over the last decades, the number and diversity of chemicals produced and traded have increased drastically, reaching several hundred thousands.

Scientists collaborate with industry to improve plastic recycling
Researchers from the Centre for Sustainable and Circular Technologies (CSCT) are part of a project to enable mixtures of plastics to be recycled together. Last updated on Wednesday 6 January 2021 Part of the problem with recycling plastics is that they have to be separated into different types as each type has different properties, meaning they can't be recycled together.

Upcycling: Turning plastic bags into adhesives
While plastic bags clog the waste stream, recycling them isn't financially attractive, since they're usually turned into very low-value products. If polyethylene packaging could be processed into high-value products, more of them would be recycled instead of ending up in landfills. (iStock photo) While many cities and eight states have banned single-use plastics, bags and other polyethylene packaging still clog landfills and pollute rivers and oceans.
