1/ This was a long-time in the making, but the Special Issue on "Waste Economies Under Wartime Conditions: A Transnational Perspective on #recycling and #WW2" was just published by @BH__journal

#twitterstorians #discardstudies #waste #history #SWW

2/ The introduction by Chad Denton & Heike Weber places the history of waste & recycling into an international context. It argues that we need to rethink waste's role in #bizhist & the role of salvage and reverse logistics in the history of #WW2 #SWW…
3/ In "Nazi German waste recovery and the vision of a circular economy" Weber explores the waste economy inside the Nazi state & shows how waste reclamation was an integral part of Nazi ideological and racial worldviews.…

1/ New evidence coming from Georgia shows that so-called “Advanced Recycling” is just the plastic industry’s latest greenwashing tactic designed to mislead the public. Let’s unpack this false solution for this week’s #FacilityFriday @SenDavidWatters @NHHouseofReps @HowardPearlNH
2/ “Advanced Recycling” is a term coined by the plastic industry that refers to technologies that break down plastic waste into a liquid mixture. Industry claims that this material is used to make new plastics but that is a lie. It is ALWAYS burned. #FacilityFriday Image
3/This week, Brightmark was forced to halt plans to build the world’s largest plastic-to-fuel facility in Georgia after failing prove that its existing facility in Indiana was able to successfully recycle plastic using the same technology. #FacilityFriday

2021 - A review of direct air capture (DAC): scaling up commercial technologies and innovating for the future

Threads to highlight important & interesting nuggets of academic info.

Don't trust me, I'm human:…
2. #DAC is a developing approach to negative emissions technology (NET), necessary to ensure that global temperatures remain low.

"[NETs] must be used to offset sectors that are hard to de-carbonize and to repay the debt held by the planet's carbon reservoirs."
3. The principle of a DAC device is to filter #CO2 out of thin air, producing a more concentrated stream of CO2 at an #energy cost.

"To meet our #climate goals, 10B tons/yr [of CO2] must be removed globally by 2050... DAC currently removes 1000s of tonnes of CO2/yr" Schematic of Climeworks' DAC technology https://www.theengin

And we're live - our ZW Live! #webinar "Should the #EU ban all exports of its #waste?" is now in full swing!

Watch it live on our Youtube channel if you couldn't register via Zoom:

@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ All systems produce #waste - but how can we "waste well"?

Even with proximity principles in place, waste get side to the populations with the lowest incomes and from whose the biggest efforts are required - food for thought from our speaker @MaxLiboiron.

#WasteTrade #webinar
“Waste exports means creating further impacts on 'sacrifice zones' and communities which are already vulnerable; it is a presumed entitlement.” – @MaxLiboiron

In the century since its invention, plastic has become a #Pollution nightmare. Much is designed to be used just once. And much is. Yet billions are being invested in making more.

📢 Our special on #PlasticPollution and #Fossifuels is live! 📢
Despite #ClimateGoals set around the world, including increases in #SolarPower and other #RenewableEnergy, the fossil fuel sector is not about to turn its back on hydrocarbons. It has seen a beacon of hope in plastics, an industry to which it already has deep connections.
#SingleUsePlastic, like this shampoo sachet, is what fossil fuel companies are betting on to secure future profits.

The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing on infrastructure this week:…

Lots of discussion about water use and wildfire management, but also commentary on nuclear power and critical minerals that may be of interest to investors. Image
In his opening remarks, Chairman @Sen_JoeManchin talked about supporting our “zero emission #nuclear fleet” and rebuilding our domestic supply chains by responsibly mining #criticalminerals
Ranking member @SenJohnBarrasso also opened with a mention of the “necessity of advanced nuclear”

It is notable that the two most senior members, Democrat and Republican, are both strongly supportive of #nuclear power.

Was passiert mit all den #Akkus aus #Elektroautos ?
Landen die auf dem Schrott ? #Recycling #Battery #Lithium #SecondLife

[minithread] 1/x…
2/x derzeit ist die gesetzl vorgeschriebene Recyclingquote für #Batterien (genauer differenziert wird hier nicht,. EU Batterierichtlinie v 2006) 50% Das ist (zu) wenig; das wird oft schon erreicht, wenn nur das Stahlgehäuse verwertet wird. Die vorgeschr. Rücklaufquote ist 45%
3/x heisst das, dass massenweise Batterien aus #Elektroautos auf dem Schrott landen ? Nein, denn:
1) ist eine sehr viel strengere Richtlinie bereits in Arbeit
2) kommen die Akkus gerade erst auf die Straße (Markthochlauf). Moderne Li-Ionen-Zellen halten 1500 ~ 3000 Vollzyklen

1. A #Thread concerning three years of #5 plastic.

This pile looked crazy and messy!

In a typical American home, all of this would end up in the landfill.

Let's see what I can do with a few phone calls.

2. First call: local homeless shelters who serve meals.

They we're excited for containers for meals.

Typical cost of new take-away meal containers can range from $1 each to $2.50.

Recycle containers & savings for non-profit.

3. A few hangers from my house shoes.

I LOVE this brand, but I really wish @Dearfoams house shoes didn't come with these hangers.

Used clothing store in town needs them to hang up ties, belts, and scarves.

Just because something is #recyclable does not mean it's #recycled. This article makes a lot of great points about misleading consumers on the sustainability (or lack thereof) of packaging.

I'd like to add a local and #zerowaste perspective!

The National Sword program in 2017, when China stopped accepting recyclables unless they met the stringent 0.5% contamination rate, had a big impact on recycling.

China was previously a large importer of US recyclables, which now needed to find new markets. (1/n)
As far as contamination rates go, the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency (OCRRA) noted this was "nearly impossible."

Even with a contamination rate of 1%, OCRRA has reported on looking for new solutions:… (2/n)
