Dow logoWasteAid has launched a partnership with global materials science company Dow, with the aim of advancing the collection and recycling of plastic waste in Egypt. Pilot projects will prevent plastic pollution and support local innovation and livelihood opportunities.

The partnership extends Dow’s global commitment to help advance a circular economy for plastics and reduce plastic waste and pollution in Africa. The project will see WasteAid work with public, private and community-level actors in Egypt to support scalable and sustainable solutions for the collection and valorisation of post-consumer polyethylene (PE), which is used in a wide range of everyday packaging applications.
