Plastic waste

US researchers have calculated that more than eight billion tons of plastic have been produced since the 1950s. About five billion tons of it is waste today. This plastic waste is to be found in landfills, in the open, and in the oceans. A new European marine conservation project seeks to remedy the situation: in our dossier, we present the Clean Oceans Initiative co-founded by KfW, which has just celebrated its one-year anniversary – and other innovative approaches to preventing and processing plastic waste.
