The world is drowning in its waste; Is there a way out?
Every year, humans generate over 2 billion tons of solid waste —of which one-third is not managed properly and contributes to approximately 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. That’s roughly equal to the weight of 4,000 Burj Khalifas. What’s more, this waste is estimated to increase to 3.4 billion tons per year by 2050, roughly equivalent to the weight of 7,000 Burj Khalifas.
