CHALLENGES

We believe that the entire manufacturing industry should be looking much, much further into the future than it does now. Given that we live on a finite world and there are millions of synthetic chemicals in existence and most of them are toxic to life in one way or another, we think humanity itself faces a prodigious problem in the next few centuries.

We are materials scientists. Here are the list of actions we know have to happen: we have to consume far less than we do now; we have to shift towards completely renewable energy sources and materials; we have to be able to separate organic and inorganic components and effectively be able to reuse them forever; we have to reduce waste until we begin to yield zero waste, or indeed, be able to use more waste than we generate.
