The Problem

The environmental damage caused by plastic pollution has reached over 5 trillion metric tons, yet only 9% of that waste is recycled; 12% gets burned, and the rest is left there. - we haven't found a sustainable way to get rid of plastic.

The Idea

Our goal is to eradicate this plastic pollution problem starting at recycling plants. At Nema, we will be able to reduce the total amount of plastic pollution in places like Canada upto 86% within 10 years.

The Outcome

Nema has set a goal to eliminate the burning of plastic and to practice eco-friendly decomposition of plastic in recycling plants, then focus on the rest of the world.

At Nema

We found a way to reduce plastic pollution coming from recycling plants by finding an effective method to decompose plastic.

We're standing to make a change in the world by solve the world's biggest problem. We want to eliminate the burning of plastic and to practice eco-friendly decomposition of plastic in recycling plants, then focus on the rest of the world. We will decrese Canada's plastic pollution by 86% in the next 10 years.

We plan on leveraging the natural plastic decomposition capabilities of ideonella sakaiensis and the CRISPR gene editing system through nematodes to gain the ability to decompose plastic, globally.
