What if all plastics were recycled? Today, less than 10% are. The other 90% are either mismanaged and buried in landfills, sent to incinerators, or end up in our environment as litter polluting our land, rivers, and oceans. But imagine if all plastics could be recycled. At Alterra, we convert plastics back into their original building blocks to produce new plastics and other valuable products. We're disrupting the traditional thinking that used plastic should be discarded and helping people see that plastics are valuable and designed to become new again. That's Alterra…solving plastic pollution through infinitely renewed plastics.
