There are a number of advancements being made to deal with our trash and our way of making things. Here are two that I just read about. Have you read of any others?

1. Have you read about researchers at the University of Texas designing an AI generated enzyme that can break down PET plastics in hours rather than centuries? PET plastic accounts for approximately 12% of the solid waste created worldwide. https://tinyurl.com/597w6pbs

2. Did you know that traditional steel production contributes 8% of CO2 emissions worldwide? In Sweden, SSAB's HYBRIT pilot plant—built in collaboration with Swedish state-owned mining company LKAB and state-owned power company Vattenfall, are transforming steel production. With their new hydrogen process, the CO2 emissions are eliminated as the process only produces water vapor. https://tinyurl.com/3m7njcze
