Industrial Recycling

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories about four innovative solutions to the industrial recycling challenge: the discovery of an enzyme that can eat plastic; a company in Colorado (ReWall Co.) that converts beverage containers into ceiling tiles; a New Mexico energy company that recycles and reuses fracking waste water; and a tax incentive program in Norway that rewards companies that recycle more than 95% of their waste and penalizes those that don’t.
