With mountains of plastic waste piling up in landfills and scientists estimating that there will be more plastics by weight than fish in the ocean by 2050, the growing environmental challenge presented to the world by plastics is well understood. What is less well understood by the scientific community is the lost energy opportunity. In short, plastic waste is also energy wasted.

Florida-based J&J Green Paper is among companies researching how to increase paper’s already high recycling rate.
The use of paper traces back to ancient civilizations. Its origins as a packaging or food service material may not go back quite that far, but paperboard’s established place in these sectors is one factor that has helped it create and maintain a recycling rate that outpaces plastic.

While most consumers assume that paper products eventually disintegrate or are recycled, the truth is that a majority of paper products, including coffee cups, take-out containers, pizza boxes and more, are coated with polyethylene, which prevents leaks and liquid absorption, but renders them unfit for recycling. While polyethylene products eventually do decompose, greenhouse gases are released in the process, and harmful chemicals are released when this coating is exposed to hot food or beverages.
