#1 “Anheuser-Busch partners with UBQ for waste-based plastics in Brazil

The Brazilian arm of Anheuser-Busch InBev—the world’s largest brewer—has tapped Israel’s UBQ Materials to integrate waste-based, climate-positive thermoplastics into its packaging mix.

UBQ’s process diverts unsorted municipal solid waste from landfills, including all organics, and converts it into a sustainable alternative for petroleum-based plastics, wood, and concrete.

“Using waste in the form of a recyclable substitute for plastic helps cater to the environment in more ways than one. We remain committed to having a positive impact on the ecosystem and contributing to a circular economy” said Karina Turci, Packaging Sustainability Manager at Ambev.

UBQ’s material enables manufacturers to address multiple sustainability development goals with a single material substitution: waste diversion, emission prevention, and preservation of finite natural resources. “Waste is the most abundant resource available. Wherever humans live, manufacture, and operate, our technology can make a difference,” said Albert Douer, Chairman and Co-CEO of UBQ Materials. “Ambev is taking an important step in offsetting its carbon footprint and pushing back against methane emissions. We are happy to be catalyzing this change.”
