Clinton Global Initiative Brokers Waste-to-Fuel Partnership

Plastic floading in water

Practical solutions to recently-understood manmade problems like the great Great Pacific Garbage Patch (and others like it around the world) generally seem few and far between, especially given the minimal penetration such problems have made into our collective consciousness.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t people working on them. Fast Company’s Ariel Schwartz (CleanTechnica’s first Editor!) has a story this week describing a fledgling partnership between Project Kaisei — one of the first nonprofits to raise public awareness about the GPGP — and Covanta, a company with their own plastic-to-diesel technology. Real progress from such a partnership is a few years off, but these are definitely the types of for-profit/non-profit collaborations that should be actively encouraged and rewarded.

Head over to FC for the full story, and quotes from each organization’s spokesmen.
