Australian scientists may have discovered solution to our plastic recycling problem

Great to see a new and promising approach to recycling plastic coming out of Australia. Check out this news item that came in my feed this morning from the ABC: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-11-20/scientists-may-have-found-solution-to-plastic-recycling-problem/11679326


Got to say, one of the confusing comments in the article is...


"It would take dozens of those facilities to make a substantial dent in Australia's plastic problem".


My response to that is ..."so what?". Would building dozens of such facilities in Australia be worse than the amount of holes we dig to bury it in? Surely this is better?


It's great to see the UK is willing to give it a shot and see if this process can be part of the solution. Hey, even if it's not, I bet what they learn by doing it will get them quicker to approaches that will work!
